5 Ways to Make Reading Fun!

Hi friends! Thank you for stopping by this post! Today I am going to share with you my 5 tips for making reading fun for your student! Reading is HARD and there are many kids who get frustrated when they have a hard time learning to read. It is especially important to make sure that you are doing everything you can do for your child or student to encourage them!

Here are 5 things that I make sure to incorporate in my classroom and that you can try at home!

1) Choice

Allowing your child to have a choice in book is so important! Your child will be so much more motivated to read if they get to chose what they are reading! I love going to thrift stores to stock up on books because I am able to get a picture book for 30 cents!

2) Make a cozy reading space

Make a special place in your child’s bedroom or your living room to be a special reading area! Get some fuzzy pillows, a lamp, rug, whatever your child likes! Who wouldn’t want to read in a cozy area?

3) Reading Tools!

Take advantage of the reading tools out there! There are finger lights, pointers, finger puppets, and so much more! A simple thing may engage your kiddo in ways you couldn’t have imagined!

4) Be animated!

I know it can be pretty draining to read to kids over and over again. However, I want to challenge you to be animated when you read to your child! Use character voices, hand motions, and movement to engage your child!

5) Make reading a part of everyday life!
