Daily independent reading will promote improved reading skills and vocabulary development.
Require your child to read regularly. Daily independent reading will promote improved reading skills and vocabulary development.
Encourage your child to read from several non-fiction sources such as magazines (Sports Illustrated for Kids, Time for Kids, etc.), biographies, and other information texts.
Read aloud to your child on a regular basis. Choose books that are slightly above your child’s current reading level. This is a great way to increase vocabulary, develop concepts, and model fluent reading.
Research shows the more reading students do, both in and outside of school, the better readers they become.
