Back to school reading tips What Parents Need to Know Experts say reading aloud with your child is one of the best ways you can help him/her grow into a successful reader. When you make reading a joyful, fun activity, kids will keep coming back for more. As you discover adventures between the covers of a book, you discover things about each other as well. And with every turn of the page, your child expands his or her vocabulary, comprehension, reasoning and grammar skills. To maximize the benefit your child gains from reading: Create a “Reading Ritual” by reading together every day at the same time in a special place. Cuddle with your child while reading together so your child will associate reading with a sense of security. Children learn better when they feel safe. Use silly voices and sound effects to peak your child’s interest. Follow along with your finger as you read to show how text moves from left to right. This will help your child connect to the text you are reading. Point out the pictures in the book and talk about what you see. Point out different kinds of words around you like shopping lists, store signs and labels. Ask open-ended questions about the stories you read together. Children like and need to hear favorite stories over and over. It helps them recognize and remember words and gives them confidence about reading. Let your child touch and hold the book. Ask him or her to help you turn the pages. Don’t push your child to read beyond his ability. Choose age-appropriate books and congratulate any progress he or she makes with his or her reading skills.
