Tips to make reading more fun
It is easy to understand why reading is so important to our children. The trick is to make this activity fun day after day. It is not only important to expose our children to reading but also to help them develop their love for reading. Here we share some of our favorite tips to make reading time as fun as possible. Choose books according to interest: Children like to read about what interests them. If your child loves animals, look for books about animals. They will enjoy those books much more than others.
Use interactive books: Children learn best while they play. Find books with fun elements to see, touch and listen. Some of the most interesting books include pages with textures, pieces that are raised, recorded sounds, etc.
Eliminate Distractions: If you are with a small child, put it on your legs. If you are with a bigger child, sit next to him on the couch or on the floor and make sure he is focused with you in the book. At night, turn off the main lights and read with a directed light so that the child’s focus is on the story.
Follow the reading with your finger: Children older than 4 years can already begin to indicate and recognize the sounds, and associate them with the letters. Find books with rhymes: Especially for a child who is beginning to read, this helps with memory and phonetics as well as identifying correlations between similar words.
Find books that make them laugh. Look for books with humor that are fun to read and leave your children with a smile when they reach the final page. They will want to go back to the beginning and read them again! Search for music books: Whether they are books based on popular songs, books that are accompanied by music or animated videos based on books with the lyrics to follow. Children will love singing the songs and they will be made easier to read.
Immerse yourself in the story: Stand up and act the scenes, imitate the voices of the characters, use accessories to give life to the stories. Thus, reading becomes play and is more fun. Do not worry if your child wants to read the same book 20 times in a row. Young children love repetition and learn to make a correlation between what is memorized and words in the text.http://www.childinharmony.com/tips-make-reading-fun.htmlhttp://www.childinharmony.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/reading-more-fun.jpghttp://www.childinharmony.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/reading-more-fun-150x150.jpgEducationfree reading games,reading fun,reading games
