Helping your child at home...

❖ Encourage your children to read books and other materials related to their interests or hobbies.



❖ Have your children read game instructions, recipe directions, comic books, catalogs, toy advertisements, and children’s magazines.



❖ Make sure each of your children has a comfortable, quiet spot for reading.



❖ When your children finish reading a book or story, find time for them to tell you and other family members about it.



❖ Set aside a special time during the week for everyone in the family to read. Turn off the television and enjoy the quiet. This lets your children know that reading is important and pleasurable for everyone in the family.
