HealthyChildren.org – Helping Your Child Learn to Read
Posted September 23, 2010on:
American Academy of Pediatrics states “Every year, 35% of American children start kindergarten without the language skills they need to learn to read. Children who are not able to read at grade level are at risk for school failure when schoolwork becomes increasing dependent on reading ability.”
It’s time right now to go grab a fun pile of books and snuggle up to read together! How about rotating books in the van? How about fresh books in a basket in the bath room? How about a nice bin of books on the breakfast table? Take a look at your house and see spots to put fresh books – reading will be so inviting!!
