Once your child moves into first, second, and third grade, being able to read fluently and comprehend what he or she reads become critical for future success in school.

Here are some things to watch for that may suggest that your child is a struggling reader. Does your child: *Have difficulty remembering lessons? *Hate to read aloud? *Guess at words? *Continue to need to sound out most words on a page? *Struggle as he is working to sound out the words? *Read slowly with a very choppy sound? *Complain that he or she doesn't understand what he or she's read?

If so, sign your child up for the Johnson City Library program: SIT! STAY! READ! This program starts on Wednesday, January 16, after school at the Johnson City Library. Registration forms available at the library through January 12. Call 868-4469 for more information
