Finally, here’s the last portion of reading aloud tips for you and your little bookworms.
- Leave time for discussion after reading a story.
- Bring a third dimension to the story: besides just reading add more activities related to the topic of the story. Cook muffins, cut out characters, make jigsaw puzzles, etc.
- Fidgety children find it difficult to stay concentrated on a story. Pencils, crayons, and paper would allow them to keep their hands busy.
- Father’s reading helps to dissociate books from women teachers and brings back the popularity of reading.
- Read yourself for pleasure – parents act as role models for their kids.
- Allocate time every day for the child to read by himself even if it mean just turning the pages.
- When a child wants to read to YOU, it is better for the book to be easy rather than challenging. If the child is struggling with reading a book that is a bit out of their reading level, it very well might turn them off of reading forever. That is not what we want to happen!
