This tip is a simple one that actually came from my school teacher aunt. When kids are learning to read, and pointing at the words as they go, give them a "witch finger" (a Halloween prop from the dollar store). I know it sounds crazy, but my younger boys think it is great.
It is an easy way to keep little ones focussed on reading. Isn't it a fantastically simple idea?
Do you have a great tip for beginner readers? I'd love to hear it.
