Inspire a Love of Reading

Reading is such an important part of future success in school! Many of us want to help our students become better readers. One way to do that is to show them your love of reading.
Try one or a couple of these ideas and see if they work for your family.

  1. Read books, magazines, and newspapers around your child.
  2. Read aloud to your child for at least 20 minutes a day! Establish a daily story time together. Make your voice sound enthusiastic as you read.
  3. Encourage reading by providing a well lit area with bookshelves full of books. Books can be inexpensive holiday or birthday gifts. Bookshelves can be made from old boxes, cartons, or scraps of wood.
  4. Limit your child's exposure to TV, movies, computer, and video games. Offer good alternatives like reading!
  5. Talk with your child about what they are reading at school. Keep in contact with their teacher about their progress.
  6. Teach your child how to care for books. Discuss the importance of keeping books clean.
  7. Help your child get a local library card and make a point of visiting the library together.
