Reading is essential for a child’s success. The barriers children face with difficulty reading often outweigh their desire to read. Without guidance, support and confidence they never overcome them.
Learning to read is a sequential process; each new skill builds on the mastery of previously learned skills.
Visit the library – make reading a part of your routine.
Read everyday. Whether reading becomes a habit children will enjoy it and know its part of their daily routine.
Attend reading events, libraries, book shops and schools hold many different, often free events.
Take part in reading challenges. Reward your child for reading.
Read with your child. Regardless of your child’s age, children feel great when their parent listens to them read.
Read different materials. Newspapers, magazines are just as good as books so expand your reading materials to gain even more knowledge.
Try reading apps such as reading eggs, endless reader and story kit.
