“Children are made leaders on the laps of their parents.”
Children are encouraged to read throughout the school year and they recognized for their reading accomplishments in class in front of their peers. Reading at an early age builds confidence and strengthens children’s ability to learn.
It is common for children to learn how to read at different ages. Some children learn how to read early on and others may take some more time before they begin reading. Regardless of their where they are at with their reading skills, it’s important to celebrate and encourage their successes as they reach new milestones in their development.
Patience and consistency is the key to success
Whether you are reading to your child or your child is beginning to read on their own, it is important to be consistent. Making reading a habit can be an effective way to instill consistency and get the best results. A couple ideas to try is to read early in the morning, as soon as they come home or right before bed. Choose the time that works best for you and your child.
If your child is not wanting to read or not following along, be patient and keep with it. Through repetition they will begin to become more familiar with the process and will still gain from the practice.
