This Summer, Focus on Reading

Now that summer is pretty much here, it is time to start focusing on your child's reading. During the school year, it can be a little difficult to focus on reading because classes, homework, and afterschool activities take up a big part of your child's day. This means there is less time for pleasure reading and a stronger focus on the academic side of this skill. However, because reading is part of your child's learning foundation, it is necessary to focus on improving this skill as much as possible, and the summer provides the perfect opportunity.

Tips to Help Your Child Improve and Enjoy Reading

  • Do not focus on quantity, focus on quality. When it comes to reading, you don't want to overwhelm your child and make them hate it. Reading shouldn't feel forced. Yes, it does take practice, and the more your child reads the better. With that said, it shouldn't feel forced. Instead of focusing on how much they read, focus on helping your child read quality books that they actually enjoy.
  • Make their reading area a personalized place. Allow your child to choose a place or area they feel comfortable in. Some children may even find it fun to build a reading fort or reading tent. Help them find or build their own special reading place.
  • Others need more interactive ways of reading. Try reading a book out loud with your child, and you can read one character's lines and your child gets to read the other character's lines. You can even get a script of a scene from a movie they like and try reading the characters' lines and acting them out.
