Growing a Love for Reading

Read to them. As kids are growing up, make reading aloud part of your daily routine. Kids will make positive associations with reading and spending time with family.

Keep books in the house. Kids who grow up in homes with lots of books read more. If your family has an ereader, keep it stocked with new books. You can even check out ebooks from the library.

Set aside time daily for your kids to read. Prioritizing reading by making time for it, even as kids get older, has a huge impact.

Read! Parents who read more have kids who read more. Don't save your reading time for after your kids are in bed. Read in front of them, and make going to the library a routine for you and your kids.

Growing Reading Comprehension

Read-Stop-Think

With this strategy, students will READ small chunks of text, STOP to monitor their understanding, and then THINK within, about, or beyond the text. Many comprehension skills can be applied at these stopping points, and you can do this with both fiction and non-fiction texts.
