Tips for Reading Aloud

Just because your child is reluctant to read aloud, this doesn't necessarily mean their reading skills aren't up to par. In fact, many students who are shy about reading aloud are great at it, they just need to develop their confidence. To help your child master reading aloud confidently, check out these helpful reading tips.

Practice Reading Together

Forcing your child to read aloud to you before they feel comfortable doing so can make reading even more stressful for them than before. Avoid turning reading into an anxiety-filled task and instead practice reading together. You can read aloud together until your child feels confident enough to do it all on their own.

Look for Another Audience

If your child is hesitant about reading to you, encourage them to practice reading to another audience that doesn't make them nervous. Reading to a baby sibling, a pet, or even their stuffed animals can make them feel less stressed and more excited for the task. Once the master this, they'll be more excited to share their reading abilities with you.

Let Mistakes Happen

Students who are just starting to learn to read are bound to make mistakes. Let your child know that it's ok to make mistakes and that these are just part of the learning process. As they read to you, don't point out every single tiny mistake they make, since this can hurt their reading confidence. Do correct larger mistakes, but don't hesitate to let some of the little ones go.
