Hi guys! I'm hoping someone out there might be able to offer some advice. My DD is 5 (and a half) and is in her first year of school. She is having some issues reading and I just don't know where to begin.
The teachers are constantly sending home little post it notes on her reading books and sight word folder saying she needs to "be up to speed" but can't offer any advice on how to do so. When I approach them, it's just "oh just practice more".
We practice most nights and sometimes she's absolutely fine and others she just cannot get it... I don't know why? It's like she just forgets how to read some days.
Today she didn't want to go to school because it's her reading test day and she just think she can't do it it's breaking my heart.
So I'm hoping there are some fun ways to help her understand but also learn to love reading. At the moment we do her school books, her sight words and "fun" reading at night, so she picks her book and we read together.
Any advice would be much appreciated
