Reading can support your child’s early development and early education. It can also help them understand various emotions, promote imagination, encourage creativity, and boost critical thinking skills. Luckily there are many ways for children to develop their reading skills early. Notable examples include Child Care Programs and our Preschool in New York.
At home, here are a few things parents can do to encourage and teach their children to read more:
- Start a Book Club at Home
A fun and creative way to help your children read more is by starting a book club at home. You could take turns assigning a book to read together every week. A book club is also a great bonding activity and will help parents understand the interests of their children.
- Read Your Children a Bedtime Story Regularly
A bedtime story is perfect for children still learning to read. Reading to them regularly before bed is a great way to expand your child’s vocabulary, fuel interest in books, and a great way to bond with your kids at night.
- Organize and Encourage Activities That Require Reading
There are many fun games and activities that incorporate reading. These games can also help your children learn more about their environment while promoting their communication skills and reading skills. A few examples include pointing out and reading signs, word searches, and scrabble.
Learning to read early can support your kid’s Education, inspire a love for learning, and expand their outlook on life. Our Daycare in the Upper East Side, New York, includes programs to support your child’s early education, promote their literacy skills, and more.
