Checklist for Helping Your Children Become Readers

At every age, the task of putting your children on the way to becoming good readers changes. Check to see if you are doing what is necessary:

Preschool

The preschool years are important because you are helping your children acquire reading readiness skills. You should be helping your preschoolers by

-having a daily reading time together
-engaging in many one-on-one conversations to increase their vocabulary
-reading nursery rhymes and poems together
-helping them learn about the world through play
-giving them their own books

Elementary School

In the first three grades, children acquire the mechanics of reading. You can help them develop the necessary skills by

-reading to your children every day
-jumping immediately on any problems causing them difficulty in learning to read
-listening to them read daily
-talking with them about what they have read
-playing word games with them

Middle School

At this level, most of your children’s reading will now be concentrated on subject material. They need to know how to read for meaning. Help them by

-talking with them about what they are reading
-reading to them, as it helps them learn more sophisticated vocabulary and concepts
-working with them on any shaky skills
-promoting reading beyond schoolwork
-limiting their TV viewing time
