Helping your Children learn to read and learn to love to read
With many children starting back at school (or starting school for the first time!) over the next couple of weeks parents up and down the country are going to be ready with their own New School Year Resolutions about helping their child with essential skills that they will be using everyday like reading and writing.
Books, books and more books. Top Ender and Baby Boy have more books than a small library and they are all easily accessed. There are some in their bedrooms and the rest are in the living room. They both see Daddy and I reading and we both read to them to. We encourage both Baby Boy and Top Ender to read to us, it might be that they don't use the words in the book but tell us what is happening in the pictures or that they tell us what they remember of the story. The important part is that they are enjoying using a book even if it is just the pictures that they are using.
What other tips do you have for helping a child learn not only to read, but to love to read? Leave me a comment and let me know what it is!
