How to Encourage Your Child to Read During Summer Break

If your child could use some extra reading practice this summer break, use these tips from The Tutoring Center, Middletown DE to encourage summer reading.

Start a Book Club

Make reading a social activity by starting a summer book club. Have your child get together with some friends so they can choose what books they would all like to read over the summer months. Depending on the length of the book they've chosen, set weekly reading goals for weekly book club meetings. Have them discuss what they've read so far by asking what they like, what they don't like, and what they would change about the story. Having someone to discuss books with can make reading more exciting for your child.

Make Reading a Positive Activity

Reading can often turn into an activity that children don't want to participate in because they see it as a negative. Avoid making your child read as a punishment as this will take the fun away from reading. To make reading a positive activity, set the right example by picking up a book, magazine, or newspaper in your free time. Give your child a new book as a reward or as a gift in order to make this activity positive. Sitting down and reading together can also make it more fun and rewarding for your child.
