Why is reading so important?
Because once you learn to read, you read to learn!
Reading is a lifelong skill you never stop working on, and that's why it's a core subject throughout your child's K-12 education. There are 4 major ways to offer reading support:
1. Prevent them from getting discouraged.
2. Help them with reading mechanics such as phonics, grammar, and spelling.
3. Choose books that interest them and fit their reading level.
4. Encourage them to read and make reading fun for them.
While it may be challenging to get your children started in reading, every moment spent is a worthwhile investment!
I do believe something very magical can happen when you read a good book. -J.K. Rowling
