Activities to help improve your child's reading skills

Activities to help improve your child's reading skills

Sherry Wangen met with four GCC students and their children to demonstrate different activities they can do to help with their child's reading development.  These four students came from Iraq, Iran, Syria, and Korea - all the children had really different language backgrounds. 

Sherri worked with all of them helping them with letter recognition, how to put the letters in order and how to match the sounds with the letters.  All of these activities were really fun!! 

Below you can see all the videos in the playlist, or you can select the video that corresponds with the reading skill you want to focus on.
