Literacy At Home – Reading Tips for Parents
“Children are made readers on the laps of their parents.” — Emilie Buchwald
Research shows that reading books aloud is a most valuable support parent can provide in helping children learn to read and to develop an interest in books!
Have your child sit next to you or on your lap to provide him with a feeling of security
Why? When a child feels insecure, the body releases a hormone that can interfere with learning. Creating a warm, close bond makes the child comfortable and can help him learn.
Most importantly, make reading time fun!
