Five fun summer reading tips for children
(NC)-Don't let your child's reading comprehension fall behind his or her classmates this summer, especially when there's lots of opportunity for them to not only maintain but improve their reading skills. Here are five simple tips to make reading fun and keep your child engaged through the summer months.
Show them reading is fun
Set aside time to read together as a family and enjoy reading out loud in character voices with your children. Visiting the library or participating in a summer reading program can be a lot of fun for children.
Keep them interested
Visit your local library and let children pick out materials they are interested in reading. Comic books, magazines, even baseball or hockey cards will help kids improve their reading skills.
Make reading an everyday activity
Encourage your children to read anything and everything - street signs, menus, recipes and books are all great tools to strengthen literacy skills.
Set an example
Let your kids see you read so they know that reading is important and that it can be an enjoyable pastime. A great way to do this is to turn the TV off and enjoy a good book.
