Tips for Raising Eager Readers from Savings Ace

  1. 1. INSTILL GOOD READING HABITS IN YOUR KIDS<br />Tips from SavingsAce to Teach Your Kids the Joys of Reading<br />
  2. 2. WHY HAVE KIDS STOPPED READING?<br />Kids today don’t seem to read at all, due to:<br />The variety of channels and shows on television<br />The accessibility of other forms of entertainment on the computer<br />High-end game stations and portable gadgets<br />However, the ironic part is that adults do exactly the same things – they watch television and sit at the computer all the time.<br />The PSPs are probably replaced with BlackBerrys, but the end effect is the same<br />
  3. 3. GREAT IDEAS TO ENCOURAGE READING IN CHILDREN<br />SavingsAce helps you understand how you can teach your kids to read and urges you not to force them at any stage – it will only have the opposite effect!!<br />
  4. 4. Start early<br />Introducing your offspring to books should happen even before the child has learned to read<br />Many parents don’t start promoting good reading habits until the child is already in school and familiar with the alphabet<br />SavingsAce knows that kids who are read to from books grow up to be stronger readers than those who aren’t<br />An early demonstration of the fun and entertainment that books can provide makes it easier to develop good reading habits<br />
  5. 5. Create interest<br />It’s essential to make reading a fun activity<br />Tap into the child’s interests with your book selections<br />Get a book on Mighty Machines if your kid likes machines <br />A book on dinosaurs may be a good place to start if he’s interested in animals and nature<br />
  6. 6. Make it interactive<br />You may have to start by reading to your child<br />However, you can move on to reading with your child, making the experience more and more interactive as you go along<br />Ask questions about pictures and words you come across<br />Soon, your little one will be identifying words in a way you might have never thought possible<br />
  7. 7. Schedule it!<br />Set aside a specific time for your child to read to make it a habit<br />The exact time should be chosen based on the child’s schedule and maturity<br />Bedtime is a great time for most kids<br />Just prior to dinner or after coming back from play or school also works well<br />
  8. 8. AGE-APPROPRIATE<br />SavingsAce suggests that the books you choose should be age-specific<br />This applies to both content and quantity<br />For younger kids, there should be no more than a couple of short sentences per page with elaborate pictures<br />The younger ones can enjoy something that’s more descriptive and interesting to read with fewer pictures too<br />
  9. 9. THESE TIPS ARE EFFECTIVE … BUT DON’T PUSH YOUR CHILD INTO ANYTHING<br />SavingsAce suggests that you keep trying while setting a good example by reading for your own pleasure!<br />
