Reading is a beautiful activity that can help you learn, grow, and amuse you while you get lost in the pages. However, a lot of children rather spend their time watching TV than reading a book! If your child is one of these, but you’d like him/her to read once in a while, The Tutoring Center in Broken Arrow has this post for you!

How to Encourage Your Child to Read

Choose Well

A big tip for getting your child interesting in books, is to actually pick one that s/he’s intrigued or curious about. Likewise, make sure that the material is appropriate for his/her age and reading abilities.

Set the Right Conditions

Reading with the music playing may work for some, but it isn’t effective if your child has trouble focusing on a book. Make sure that s/he is comfortable, that the lighting is right and that s/he has enough time to enjoy the book.

Actively Engage with the Book

There are certain practices your child can do to engage more with the book and improve his/her reading comprehension at the same time. For example:
  • Taking notes about the new words learned, significant plot points, questions or like/dislikes about the story.
  • Keeping a dictionary close and look for unknown words to understand the book better.
  • Highlighting important information in the book.

Share It

Experiences can be a lot richer and better enjoyed if they’re shared with others! You can join in with your child, read the book, and then discuss what you thought and felt while reading it.
