Reading is one of the most important things in life. Without it you can’t read signs, menus, books, or instruction manuals. You won’t be able to do certain math problems, science tasks, and more, so it’s very important that everyone knows how to read. School is one of the best ways to learn to read. Your child’s teacher will help him learn to read and enjoy it. You have to continue that encouragement during the off time or they’ll lose it and not want to go back again. weblink
The best thing to do is find a series of books your child enjoys. This may be difficult at first, but it will be very helpful. If you are not sure what your child will enjoy, you’ll need to start somewhere. Ask him what he likes to read or what topics are of interest to him. Find a book for him to start reading and see if it works for him.
If you can’t find a series of books, consider books written by the same author. Most times an author keeps the same writing style and that may help them to enjoy reading books. If this doesn’t work consider a subject or type of book for them to try. When you’re in this mode, it’s important to go to the library to check these books out rather than purchasing them. If possible, stay at the library and encourage your child to read a chapter or two of the book before you leave.
Learning disabilities can cause problems when it comes to reading, but there are several different ways to handle them. One way I have found that works well is to use a Kindle. When children struggle with reading do to a learning disability a book can seem endless in size and can cause unneeded stress. When you use a Kindle the pages are hidden and the book doesn’t appear to be so large. Some children do better when technology is involved and that’s another reason why a Kindle makes a good tool. You can use the computer or purchase the actual device so either way will work for your child.
When you help your child do find something they’re interested in and you help them with a technique that will make reading easier for them, they’ll want to take the time to sit down and read. It’s important to choose books that are within their reading limits so they don’t get frustrated and discouraged. Reading is very important in a child’s life. Without it they won’t get very far no matter what it is they do or want to do. Everything evolves around reading and so it’s important you encourage your child to read
