READ WITH YOUR CHILD

General Tips for Reading Aloud with your child: 

 ·        Allow your child to see you reading.

 ·        Read slowly and with expression.


·        Take turns reading a page or a chapter with your child.

·        Keep plenty of reading materials at home.

·        Make a fun event out of visiting the library with your child.

·        Involve your child in selecting books from the library.


·        Make sure that both you and your child enjoy the book.

·        If a story isn't working, it is O.K. to stop reading, and choose another book.

·        It is never too early to start reading to your child. And don't stop reading, as the child gets older.

·        As you read together, ask open-ended questions about the story that help your child to think about what you are reading, such as: “What would you do if you were in this situation?”

·        It only takes fifteen minutes a day to create a reader.

·        Remember that reading not only improves your child's performance in school, but also adds enrichment and beauty to his or her life.
