Read with Your Child Every Day
« on: August 25, 2012, 10:42:09 AM »
•   Let your child see you reading both for pleasure and for information. He will want to imitate what you do.

•   Set aside a quiet place in your home for you and your child to read without distractions. Stock this place with books, magazines, newspapers, comic strips and other print materials that might interest your child.

•   Read aloud your child’s (and your own) favourite stories. Encourage your child to re-tell familiar stories in his own words.

•   Read aloud new stories and encourage your child to talk about the characters or what they think might happen next.

•   Before reading a new book, talk about the covers and the title page and ask what it might be about.

•   Keep these reading sessions fun and do not “test” your child with too many questions.

•   Visit the library frequently and help your child to choose new books to read with you at home.
