Teaching reading to children used to be the sole responsibility of the
schools. Fortunately today we understand the importance of reading
starting at an earlier age. Like most parents, you are eager to learn
how to teach reading to your young kids. You want to know what you can
do to light a spark in your children that will ignite their passion for
learning so they can excel in school and beyond.

Teaching Reading...Read More...
|Start Early and read often||Wait and let the school teach your child to read|
|Make reading fun!||Make reading a chore or a drill|
|Participate and interact||Delegate teaching reading to others (school, TV, DVDs)|
|Read when your child is happy, calm, well fed, and eager||Read when your children are tired, cranky, or hungry|
|Repeat. Repeat. Repeat||Throw too many new things at your kids at once. Kids need repeated exposure before learning is permanent.|
|Encourage and support||Criticize or show frustration|
|Reward: Adult has the upper hand||Bribe: Child has the upper hand|
|Be a role model||Say one thing and do another; demonstrate the importance of reading|
This is the age when your kids actually like you and want to emulate
you; take advantage of this and be a role model. Do they see you
vegging out in front of the television every night or do they see you
enjoying a good book? Show them the importance of reading by providing
examples in your every day life. This is your chance to make a
positive impact on your children.
