Help Your Child Become a Better Reader

What Can Parents Do To Help Their Children Become Better Readers:
*discuss what your child has been reading in school (& pleasure reading)
*take your child to the public library
*read the newspaper with your child
*get your child a magazine subscription
*let your child do the newspaper crossword puzzle (builds vocabulary)
*let your older children read to your younger children (both will benefit)
*let your child ask you questions about what you've been reading
*turn on the closed captioning on your television (to increase reading speed)
*read the books your child is reading in school so you have discussion topics
