Practice Reading Out Loud to Children this Holiday Season
With the holidays and school break coming up, now is the time to think about scheduling some time for reading out loud to children. As a parent, reading books out loud with your kids is an effective way to help them learn how to read. And with your active participation, your children will become more engaged in their reading skills.
Some Reading Tips to Remember for Fun and Learning
- Let your child set the pace for their reading.
- Don’t be afraid to be silly with funny sounds or voices.
- Don’t be afraid to stop for questions along the way!
- Set aside a regular time to read together every day.
- Read books that they enjoy – important.
- Let them discover “new books” that you leave in their room.
Reading out loud to children is an effective way to develop their reading skills. Your regular participation will reinforce that reading can be fun and even entertaining. And though your children may not be progressing as much as you want them to be, reading at home goes a long way in making sure they can keep up in the classroom. More importantly, it gives them yet another positive experience for reflection as they grow older.
