Word Wise: Tips for keeping your child excited about reading
Bring books to life!
Finding book-inspired activities to do in real life enhances the reading experience. Kids remember the activity long after the book has gone back to the library.
If your kids are reading “Harry Potter,” make DIY golden snitches. If your child enjoys “The Rainbow Fish,” take a virtual trip to the aquarium. Or, after reading “Wombat Stew,” take a walk outside to collect items to make your own pretend “stew.”
Because a reader today is a learner for a lifetime.
