Word Wise: Tips for keeping your child excited about reading
Create a themed reading fort. Children love forts and simply draping two chairs with a blanket can do the trick. Take it a step further to make it more appealing by giving it a beach theme with towels on the floor, an umbrella propped against the wall, and a sand bucket to hold the books.
Other possibilities are a camping theme, a pirate’s cove, outer space, a princess castle, or a forest!
Because a reader today is a learner for a lifetime.
