Reading skills are one of the primary and basic skills of an individual.
Every parent must try to improve his/her child’s reading skills from the very beginning of his/her career; otherwise the child might face a lot of problems.
So, how can you increase your child’s reading skills? The following tips can help.
Inculcate the habit of reading
The key to inculcate the habit of reading in your child is to inculcate the same habit in yourself and in your household. Incorporate the practice of reading in your household. Even the very basic things like reading the morning newspaper religiously can work wonders in influencing the child.
Use the help of phonetics
Phonetics is a branch of linguistics that deals specifically with the sound of speech. Your child will be able to learn syllables effectively.Do you know that a strong sense of syllables is mighty important in constructing flawless sentences? A strong syllable sense can also contribute in learning spellings.
Audio books can be a great help
Since audio books are read out aloud by a reader, your kid will be able to catch the rhythm of each and every word. Complex pronouncements become as easy as a piece of cake
Text-to-speech tools can be another option though. But I think I prefer the audio books more
Read aloud to your kid
This can really be a great experience for both you and your child, provided you do it the right way.
Choose the book that your kid loves the most, sit down with him/her and start reading it to him/her in a singsong voice. This might even encourage your kid to repeat the words after you.
Relate to the real world
Encourage your kid to read up some material on the book or on the internet and discuss the content’s validity in connection to the real world.
You can even connect the matter to a piece of fiction like a movie or a TV show
Get a digital library membership
A digital library more or less serves the same purpose when compared to a physical library.
Enrollment into any form of library can give you access to thousands of books and reading material that can actually promote the habit of reading in kids.
