rEADING WITH YOUR MIDDLE SCHOOL STUDENT
- Create a quiet, special place in your home for your child to read. Keep books and reading materials readily available.
- Help your child see that reading is important. Set a good example for your child by reading books, newspapers, and magazines. Talk about what you are reading.
- Visit bookstores, public and school libraries regularly to find materials for pleasure reading.
- Be attentive to your child’s interests and developing skills. Remember to be somewhat non-judgmental about the text your child chooses: cartoons/graphic novels, instructions for video games, fantasy, sports, or fashion magazines can be the key to unlocking a lifetime of reading pleasure.
- Write notes recognizing your child’s accomplishments. A little praise can go a long way!
- Encourage your child to read for 15 minutes before going to sleep each night.
