"The more you read, the more things you know. The more that you learn the more places you'll go." Dr. Seuss
We begin the school year by building good reading habits. Here are a few habits to get your child invested in reading.
Readers find a comfortable reading space. Where can you and your child read without disruptions or distractions? It could be a cozy spot on the couch or tucked in bed.
Readers treat books carefully. Whether it is your own book or a borrowed book from the library, readers make sure to handle the book with care. This begins with taking the book out and ends with returning the book back to its correct place.
Readers should read a variety of different books. They can use the cover, illustrations, and words to help them decide if they want to read the book. They can also find more books by favorite authors or illustrators.
Readers think about what they read. They should talk about the story, characters, favorite parts, and even wonderings.
Reading can be done anywhere! It can be as simple as reading a label on a grocery item, picking out a birthday card, or following signs on a hike.
