Getting a child to read. Part 4

Make-up a story using their name. I used my son’s name at the beginning, then wrote about an ocean adventure using words he was learning from Ordinary Parent’s Guide to Teaching Reading. He smiled when he read his name at the top. Unfortunately, he did not appreciate how the story ended.

Tip: When writing a story using your child’s name. Give it a happy ending!

Story Time

Story Time. When some kids are learning to read it can be scary reading to an adult. They fear constant correction. For a fun change, have your child read to their stuffed animals or toy trucks. Toys tend to be very good listeners.
