Tips for Reading Month

Tips for Reading Month

  1. Pick a theme for your child’s reading, like outer space or jungle stories

  2. Have your child set a goal for how much reading her or she will do

  3. Provide reading-related prizes for meeting their goals, like Dr. Seuss pencils or book certificates

  4. For beginning readers, sing the alphabet song with them, or play with letters starting with those in your child’s name

  5. Read to them from rhyming books, stopping at the rhyme and encouraging the child to say it with you
