Your child can now read fluently and comprehends what he reads. He has a good knowledge about phonics. He is aware of what sounds, letters or combination of letters make. He will apply this knowledge to string letters together of a word and decode them especially, when he comes across an unfamiliar word. With practice, your child is on his way to be a confident independent reader.
What you need to know
Reading aloud always does wonders, specially when children are struggling with reading. As you read, emphasize on letters and their sounds. Your child will apply the same principle when he reads.
Provide ample praise when your child deploys decoding strategies and is able to correctly read the word.
