Successful reading tips:
Is 30 minutes too long for your child to read? Read 10 minutes 3 times a day!
Plan your day ahead to see when you can best fit in reading time.
Make it fun! If you're reading with your child, make predictions together, talk about what's going on in the book, and enjoy your child's company.
If your child is reading silently, ask him/her to tell you about what is going on in the book. Also, read something while (s)he is reading to show that you value reading.
Phrase it in a positive way: "Now you GET to do your reading." Instead of "Now you HAVE to do your reading." It's a small change that can make a big difference.
Let your child choose what (s)he wants to read.
Visit the Village Library in Broadway to get some new titles to read or revisit some of your child's old favorites.
