Reading together as a family is the cornerstone to building a child's love of reading.
Where to read? Why not set up a special area in your home where you can read together. You could find a comfortable spot indoors, and perhaps another outdoors.
Who to read with? Read with different members of your family during the month. Include parents, brothers, sisters, grandparents, even cousins uncles and aunts!
Why read together? Reading together as a family is a precious bonding experience. It enables you to share what you learn adn experience through the pages of a book. It also helps you explore the world together and learn more about each other.
How can you help your children to read? Reading books aloud is one of the best ways you can help your child learn to read. This can also be exciting for you as well. The more excitement you show when reading a book, the more your child will enjoy it. The most important thnig to remember is to let your child set their own pace at whatever they are doing.
Once your chils begins to read, have them read out aloud. This helps boost your childs confidence and their ability to read and help enjoy new learning skills. Take turns reading with your child to model more advanced reading skills.
Most children will learn to read by 6 or 7 years of age. Some children learn at 4 or 5 years of age. Even if your child has a head start, they may not stay ahead once school starts. Pushing your child before they are ready can get in the way of your childs interest in learning. Children who really enjoy learning are more likely to do well in school. This love of learnnig cannot be forced.
Reading is an important skill for children to learn. Most children learn to read without any problems. Pushing a child to learn before they are ready can make learnnig to read frustrating. But reading together and playing games with books makes reading fun. Parents need to be involved in their childrens learning. Encouraging a childs love of learning will go a long way to ensuring success in school.
- Set time aside everyday to read together. Many children like to have books read at bedtime. This is a great way to wind down just before bedtime.
- Leave books in your childs room for them to enjoy on their own.
- Read books that your child enjoys.
- Don't drill your child on letters, colours, shapes, or words. Instead make a game of it and find a way to encourage your childs curiosity and needs.
Once a child learns thre knack of reading, their vocabulary of words just keeps growing and growing! Our son started Kindergarten a few months ago and he knew some basic words before starting. After just a few weeks at school, his ability to learn to read ws amazing. He comes home everyday and can't wait to get into reading his books.
