Extra reading support

Ds had reading support this year. He actually wasn't below grade level but tests horribly.

But I have noticed that he has to break down words to read longer ones. Instead of just knowing them by sight.

He also gets frustrated when I tell him to slow down.

Being a teacher myself it's hard to not put my teacher hat on.

I want to continue working on this with him this summer.

What suggestions do you have to help him.

Oh and he's going into 2nd grade

There's a free reading intervention program that I've used with a student before that I like. I'm on my phone so I will have to come back and post it.

Re: Extra reading support

The link to freereading does not work (It says 504 Gateway Time-out). Can anyone else tried any similar resources?

Re: Extra reading support

The first link didn't work at all for me and the second loaded wonky with everything shoved over to the left (maybe for phone use?). I searched and found this site: http://www.free-reading.net/index.php?title=Main_Page that worked for me and my laptop. Is it the same site? I bookmarked it to look through later . . .

Re: Extra reading support

My ds is going into 4th. He goes to ps but I "home tutor" him in LA and math to help him stay caught up. He is still a little behind with the different areas of reading, except for comprehension. I'm not a teacher so this is probably all too basic for you to be useful...But, this is what we do/have done

Reading eggs worked good for independent reading.
This year we read the first boxcar book together and he is now reading them on his own.

I got a lot of easier books, mainly non fiction for him to read. They make some chapter books that were a lot easier than others, he was embarassed to read easy books but he really needed to work on fluency. Poetry helped too. He got good at poetry but still struggled with regular reading. He also likes plays so we used that some.

Oh, and I printed off a lot of non fiction stuff off of wikipedia or wherever on stuff he liked, shows, video games, nintendo, poop, sphynx cats. Anything to get him reading. His school does Accelerated Reader at school and that does motivate him.

For harder reading he would do a couple of bible verses a night.

I still read to him every night from books that are a little more advanced than he can read.
