We have started reading today. We decided on a new strategy, a version of joint reading which we named duo reading. We have had a copy of Blitzcat by Robert Westall for a number of years and we then found The Robert Westall Box Set but kept the single copy. So now either me or my husband have one copy and Abbie has the other. We read a page and she follows, then it’s her turn. This enables us to point out when she either adds words in or misses them out (which she does on a regular basis).
We have also found that she is more likely to ask about words that she doesn’t know the meaning of.
