Some children will be ready to read early on, many will not. Let them take the lead when it comes to helping to read.
All children develop at different stages. Some children will be ready to read early on, many will not. It is important to let them take the lead when teaching your children to read. When they are keen, encourage them, don’t force them it will make reading feel like a chore. Something that they have to do is not enjoyable. To teach your child to love reading involves helping them to enjoy the process, rather than being forced.
Reading to children as they get older is still just as important. Because your children learn to read themselves, it doesn’t mean you have to stop reading aloud to them.
Don’t stop reading aloud to them, reading to children as they get older is still just as important. When children learn to read they start with short simple books, but still read them longer stories with more words, this helps them with more complex vocabulary. At the same time it will also help to keep your routine and time to bond.
Even if you don’t enjoy reading yourself set an example. If you love reading books, read in front of them. If not, perhaps read a magazine, or even a simple book. You will find, if you set an example and choose a book to read yourself in front of your child, they will follow your lead and choose one themselves.
