Back to School Reading Tips

Get your child back into the school groove with THE ELECTRIC COMPANY! Here are some suggestions from PBSPARENTS.org to keep the literacy learning going even out of the classroom.

  • Create a cozy, comfortable reading space with your child. Set rules for this area in your home to maintain peaceful reading.
  • Let your kids catch you reading. Talk about what you read in newspapers, books, and magazines with your children so they understand the importance of reading.
  • Encourage your child to read aloud at home. Your child will learn to read with expression and understanding while sharing stories with you – and siblings and grandparents, too!
  • A trip to the grocery store can reinforce reading skills. Have your child write the grocery list, find the items using the store’s signs, and read product labels — you can also encourage healthy eating.
