Reading is essential to school success.
From the time they are infants, children learn language and other important skills that will help them learn to read. Developing early literacy skills makes it easier for children to read once they begin school. Children who start kindergarten ready to read have greater success throughout their school years.
- Young children have short attention spans. You can do activities for short bits of time throughout the day.
- You know your children best and you can help them learn in ways and at times that are easiest for them.
- Parents are the best role models. If you show that reading is important and enjoyable, children will follow your lead.
- Children learn best by doing and they love doing things with you.
