Below is a link to a video of a book being read three times. This can be shared so that parents can practice this at home with the matched books that the children use.
Each read moves through the stages of blending until fluency when the children can then add in expression and they can then understand what they have read.
Discuss the characters and how they might say things. This is when they read with fluency and also you can have a greater discussion around what they are reading. For example from the video ‘How would you feel if you were trapped?’
Some children might even have to read it another time until they can read it fluently. By reading and re-reading books we are able to shift the brain load from just decoding to fluency and understanding. Children benefit from coming back to the same story over and over again.
