Tips for Reading with Your Child
Brought to you by the National Education Association
Learning to read takes practice. Loving to read takes enthusiasm. So read with your child often and create a sense of enjoyment, wonder, and even a passion for reading.
Here are some easy, practical ways you can increase your child's skills and love for reading.
- Read with your child every day possible -- even your baby. Give children something to look forward to by reading to them every day at the same time.
- Have your youngster read out loud to you. Listen carefully and make sure to praise your child's reading.
- Take turns reading -- You read a section, then have your child read the next section.
- Even after children can read on their own, keep reading to them so they can enjoy stories and books that interest them but are too hard for them to read by themselves.
