"Read This for Me!"


As adults, we take everyday reading skills for granted, absorbing menus and weather reports without thinking twice. Encourage your child to practice her reading during these casual encounters with words. Ask your little one to identify letters or short words on street signs. Have your older child read cooking instructions or newspaper headlines to you. If you have a vacation planned, encourage her to read maps and travel books related to your trip. Kids love opportunities to model adults, and these "grown-up" chances to read can expand their vocabulary beyond their school curriculum.
