Building reading skills extend beyond just reading books but building context and understanding around common words. The word wall is a great way to build vocabulary skills at home. We have word walls around her bedroom with words taken from sight words she is learning at school. This is great for all ages!
Here the first word is my daughter's name and we built a sentence with the word 'like'. For a few nights we slowly made the sentence and she had to say and point to each word as we built the sentence.
The word focused on in this sentence is "we" and we are currently building the sentence. Each night she points to each word and says it. Not only are we building literacy but comprehension and vocabulary.
