    6 Ways Parents can Promote Reading at Home

     

    You are your child's first and most important teacher.

    Here are six ways you can help your child to become a great reader!

     

    1.  READ YOURSELF - Actions speak louder than words. When your kids see you reading, they will want to follow your example.

     

    2.  MAKE SURE YOUR CHILD READS EVERY DAY! - Reading is a skill, just like baseball and volleyball. Like other skills, it gets better with practice.  Research has found that children who read for at least 30 minutes a day will develop the skills they need to become better readers at school.

     

    3.  GO TO THE LIBRARY - Make sure your family members have a library card and schedule regular trips to the library.

     

    4.  READ ALOUD TO YOUR CHILD - Research shows the THE MOST IMPORTANT THING PARENTS CAN DO TO HELP THEIR CHILD BECOME BETTER READERS IS TO READ TO THEM!

    Ten minutes a day can have a huge impact!

     

    5.  GIVE BOOKS AS GIFTS - Help your child to build his/her own library.

     

    6.  MAKE READING A PRIVILEGE - "You can stay up 15 minutes later tonight so that you can read in bed."
