Parent Tips And Suggestions

Read To You Child Every Day
Reading Books.png
Have your child read at least 10 minutes a day with the best time being right before bed. If you need to, read first and then have your child repeat what you have read. Reading is essential since you can find it every where (menus, signs, catalogs, building and you could keep going. If your child likes video games more, tell them they can earn a minute of game time for every page they read. Reading is so very important and everyone (administrators, parents, teachers, uncles, grandmothers) needs to be involved. Make it a game.  Tell your child when they will read every night for let's say two weeks, then it could mean a trip to Baskin Robbins for ice cream. So its camera, lights read!!!!

Suggestions:

1. If you take your child to the grocery store, have them read the labels on the containers you place in your cart.

2.  As you drive, have your child read signs that are along the way.

3.  Have  them look at magazines in doctor's offices.
