FIVE WAYS TO EN­COUR­AGE YOUR KIDS TO READ

201 Family - - LEARNING -

• Make read­ing a fam­ily af­fair: Read­ing to­gether is a pow­er­ful

mo­ti­va­tor for chil­dren.

• Sneak it in un­der the radar: Set your TV to closed-cap­tion­ing

or leave kids lit­tle notes to find through­out the day.

• Make read­ing fun: Cre­ate book-re­lated ac­tiv­i­ties like lit­tle

games and mini-plays based on the sto­ries.

• Cre­ate a chart: Let your kids record their achieve­ments and

build a sense of ac­com­plish­ment.

• Talk about books: Tell your kids about books you love, books you think they’ll love and even let them write a letter to their fa­vorite au­thor.
