My child does not like Reading! Help! TIPS FOR PARENTS-WHAT CAN I DO??
“A child grows in reading…by reading” by Guy L Bond.
1- Use reading materials at a suitable level of difficulty for your child. IF YOU ARE NOT SURE HAVE YOUR CHILD’S READING ABILITY LEVEL ASSESSED!
2- Use a variety of reading materials that include books, pamphlets, brochures/flyers, menus, bus schedules…
3- Are there reading process issues that need to be exercised and strengthened such as phonemic awareness, decoding/phonics, language development, and comprehension??
AGAIN, IF NOT SURE, HAVE YOUR CHILD ASSESSED.
4- Have your child write their own book.
5- Give your child an ‘interest inventory’ to determine reading material for them.
6- READ TO YOUR CHILD AS THIS BUILDS THEIR INTEREST IN READING.
7- BE A ROLE MODEL. LET YOUR CHILD SEE YOU READING.
