How to help your child read

Looking for a way to help  your child read? It's simple and easy, all you need is spending some time with them. The best way to get your child to enjoy reading is by reading with them at home. When you read with your child, your child sees how much fun reading can be. These are the best ways by which you can help your child read.

Tips to make your child read

Set up a dedicated room in your child's favourite corner for them to read. Let your child choose his/her own comfortable reading space. Make it fun by getting them a bean bag chair, some amusing
accessories, and a selection of books.

2.Encourage them to read at home:

Show your kids that reading is not limited to books. Teach your child to read by helping them practise reading newspapers, movie titles, road signs, instructions, comic books and more.

3.Set a good example.

Read aloud to your child and set an example for them. When your child observes you reading books, magazines, and newspapers, they will learn the value of reading. Invite your kid to come along with their own favourite book and make it interesting.

4. Link it with your daily life.

The best way to help your child read is by i mplementing the lessons they are reading into their daily lives. Your child's interest in reading will increase if you can make links between books and their personal experiences in daily life.

5.Continue reading the materials.

Make books and other reading materials easily accessible to your child at home. This enables him or her to understand that reading can occur anywhere and not just at school.

6.Check Out the library in your locality.
