Continue to read whatever school readers you brought home with you and other books you have at home. Your child can then tell the story in order of events. Eg; first, then, next. Remind your child that every story has a beginning, middle and end.

Here is a link to a story your child can practice reading by themselves. Help them to read the key words and then model how to read it. Remind you child to put their finger under each word as they go.
