Reading Tips

8 Tips for Reading With Children

  1. Lay books flat on tables so their covers are visible and attract the children's attention.

  2. Give your children something to look forward to by reading to them every day and at the same time if possible.

  3. Have your children read out loud to you.

  4. Listen carefully and make sure to praise your children's reading.

  5. Even after your 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.

  6. Visit the public library often. Most libraries sponsor summer reading clubs with easy goals for preschool, primary and elementary students.

  7. Ask questions (who were the main characters, what happened, what part of the book did they like best) but don't drill them too much on novel content. Summer reading should foster reading for pleasure.

  8. Provide incentives and set an example by reading yourself.
