It Works!

by Stacey

I have a client who is reading lots of Read Together books with me. She loves reading what she perceives to be “real books” and her smile glows when we are reading. While I adore seeing new readers so happy, I also am thrilled when I see true reading growth coming out of this simple Read Together practice.

The other day, I was working on sight words with this client. Sight words are those words we need to know by sight- many of which are impossible to sound out. She was struggling with many of the words and I saw her frustration growing.

Right as I was getting ready to abandon the activity, I showed her the word help. She paused and then said, “It’s help. Help! Like in I Can Help!”

And there we had one pleased child and one tutor doing her happy dance. Here’s to Reading Together!
