It’s not a rarity for kids to struggle with reading, but there are many things you can do to give them a push in the right direction. If you’re looking for ways to make reading more fun for your kids, these five tips and tricks will get you there.
Lead By Example
Your children will be more likely to fall in love with reading if you lead by example and put an effort into reading to them aloud regularly, ideally from a young age.
Once your kids actually start learning to read, reading to them all the time won’t be that helpful, but you can always turn reading into a group activity and read together with your kids.
Bring Reading to Life
You can make reading super fun if you approach it as a game. Encourage your kids to do funny voices to bring characters and stories to life and consider acting out interesting parts of the book.
Talk About Books
One of the best things about reading is that it can help your child develop imagination, especially if you take a moment to talk about books and help your kids get a better understanding of the things they’ve read.
Your kids will be more likely to enjoy reading if you opt for a book that they’ll actually enjoy, so let them have an active role when choosing the reading material.
