A natural progression in your reading activities together with your children is that after you read them to a passage from the story; have them paraphrase the story back to you. This will help you to understand what level of listening ability & understanding they are at, as well has help them to start building their vocabulary as they work to find new words they can use with their description of the story they are giving back to you.
As a homeschooler, one of the most important tasks for you to accomplish in your kid at an early age is getting them interested in & developing nice reading habits. At an early age learning to recognize letters, the sounds they make & words they finally form ought to be an activity & not a structured project. A great reading activity for kindergarten aged children, for example is to read to them.
Nice reading activities don’t always must occur at the house, or before bedtime. While you’re jogging errands around town or on holiday, perhaps have the children start to collect words from signs, or spell objects they see. Encourage them to learn different ways to describe objects see. In lieu something large, it may by immense, or enormous or even of gargantuan proportion! Have you kid arrange the words they have collected in to foolish sentences or phrases. Even something as simple as collecting letters from signs, license plates, & such to work their way through the alphabet is a nice kindergarten age reading activity.
