There is more to reading than sounding out words. Children bring their experiences to what they read. A sentence such as “Sam touched a prickly cactus,” will mean much more to a child who has seen and felt a cactus. So, fill your child’s life with new experiences. Help him learn the words for the things he sees in the world around him. The more vocabulary he experiences, the better he’ll understand what he reads.
