Reading at Home
Make reading a part of your everyday routine. Choose books that match your child's interest. Reading for just 10-15 minutes a day will benefit your child!
Before reading, talk about the book to your child. What is the story about? What do you think might happen?
Make connections to their life. What does this remind you of? After you read the book have your child retell the story.
Make different voices for the characters.
Have your child pretend to 'read' the book.
How to build a reader!
Have your child turn the pages.
Encourage them to find a rhyme.
Talk about the letters and the sounds they make.
Help them fall in love with books.
You can NEVER read a book too many times!
