Read aloud together with your child every day. Pick fun spots!
Set a good example! Everyone in the house reads at the same time.
Read the same book your child is reading and discuss it.
Let kids choose what they want to read.
Buy books on tape - Listen to them in the car, or turn off the TV and have the family listen to them together.
Take your children to the library regularly - Check the library calendar for special summer reading activities and events.
Subscribe to children magazines. (Sports Illustrated for Kids, Highlights for Children, or National Geographic World, etc...)
Read the newspaper and current events magazines, - "What do you think about what we just read?"
Make trips a way to encourage reading by reading aloud traffic signs, billboards, notices.
It was another amazing year - and a total honor and privilege being your child's librarian! I am always connected with a device or two so please feel free to email or text me on how I can support you.
In Partnership with you,
Teacher / Librarian
