Does your child enjoy school? There are always rumors floating around about different schools - not all of them are true. How many students are in your son's class? If your son has a reasonable class size and he seems to like his school, everything else usually falls into place.
If you want to help your son's reading skills, take him to the library every week to get new books. Even if he looks through picture books every night until he can start to read, that's still a very good thing to do. Take him to 'Story Hour" at your local library if they have one.
Not every 5 year old can read- many children don't start to read until they're six or seven. 80901
