Reading Starts with Parents

Support your child's reading abilities by playing an active role in their development.

  • Read to your child.
  • Read with your child.
  • Make reading a habit.
  • Eventually, you can ask them to read to you.
  • Keep it going. When school is out for the summer, schedule a day for weekly library visits.

5 Tips for Reading Skill Development

  1. Develop their ability
    Practice letter recognition, sounds and then sight words to set a strong foundation early on.
  2. Practice
    Read every night before bed, and practice throughout the month.
  3. Maintain motivation
    Keeping kids focused is rarely easy, find ways to keep their motivation high. Give monthly prizes for meeting their reading goals.
  4. Track progress
    Print out a reading chart, pin it to the fridge, and write down what the prize will be if they meet their goal.
  5. Keep it fun
    Take them to the local library to find new books and expand their thinking. It's free and you don't have to store tons of books at home. Plus, a trip to find new things is always fun for kids!
