As a Reading Interventionist, I am always looking to build on our children's reading skills. Our most basic step is recognizing and learning our letters and sounds. We also work on distinguishing between rhyming and non-rhyming words, being able to produce rhyming words, blending word parts and phonemes, segmenting words, deleting initial and final sounds.
One of the skills we work on constantly is Reading Comprehension. We are able to listen to fiction and factual text and to be able to answer who, what, where, and when questions. We also ask what is the problem and how was it solved.
These are all steps to becoming readers and writers-which help us become successful in school and life.
