• Building Readers     Family Reading

     

    Start new reading routines with your child.

    This is a great time for your family to begin some fun new reading routines!  To add some variety to regular routines:

     

    • Break the mold.
      Do you only read with your child before bed?  Find other times to look at books together, such as right after bath time.

     

    • Write a Story.
      Did your family do something special over the weekend?  Help your child make up a simple tale about it.  Do this after each special family event or holiday, and you’ll have an impressive homemade library one day.

     

    • Volunteer at school.
      If your child’s school day includes story time, try to sit in on a few sessions and volunteer to be a reader if your schedule allows you to do so.  Children love to see their parents at school!
