Ten Tips to Encourage Reading

You know it’s important to read to your child and foster that love of learning, but for whatever reason, you feel like your efforts are stalling. The important thing is you’re trying. With these 10 tips, you’ll get there.

When Should You Introduce Books?

Before your baby is even born, you might receive some baby books from your guests at your baby shower. It might seem a bit premature to think about books for a newborn — after all, they can’t even support the weight of their own head yet, let alone read a book. But, even when your baby is a newborn, it’s a great time to introduce reading.

Activities to Improve Reading Comprehension

We’ve all experienced it – we finish reading a page in a book and have no idea what we’ve read. For most advanced readers this is because we are tired or distracted. However, many young readers struggle with reading comprehension every time they read. They may “read” the passage perfectly but have no real understanding of the story. Reading comprehension is an important part of achieving full literacy. If your kiddo is struggling with reading comprehension, try some of the following activities.

Reading Routines to Start at Home Now

They may not like to admit it, but children thrive on routine. When structure is built into a child’s day, it helps him know what to expect and thus experience a measure of security. Along with the typical daily routine of eating meals, dressing, and bathing, parents should also incorporate time for reading. Red Apple Reading suggests starting the following reading routines at home today.

Improving Reading Fluency
