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.
