Steps have already been taken in our classroom to identify individual weak reading areas and work to strengthen the skills needed to successfully pass the EOG. A Scholastic study reports that “Reading a lot” is one of the most powerful methods of increasing fluency, vocabulary, [and] comprehension." Studies also show that "increased family engagement in educational programs is linked with increases in child reading achievement and other academic successes (such as high school graduation rates.)" Encourage your child to read often or read aloud with them. Ask questions to check for understanding. Online programs such as ScootPad or Study Island (your child already has a username/password for both) are also enrichment options that they can do at home.
