Teaching them to READ!

Welcome to a new year with new routines…

This is the best time of the year to start new routines at home and school.  One of the best educational routines that can be established at any home is nightly reading.  My favorite is a half hour before bed!  It helps to unwind from the day’s events, TV, X-Box and the other electronic gadgets that keep our minds on overload.   Having a book box with a variety of choices next to the bed is helpful.  Sometimes we may be in the mood for a magazine, a funny comic, a picture book or even a chapter book, but having these choices helps in keeping your child engaged in their reading.  I still have a few favorite books that I like to just reread from time to time in my book box.   Let tonight be the night to start a super routine that can stick with your child forever!
