You have an important role to play in helping your child become a better reader.  You also want your child to succeed, so offer encouragement and support as you build their love of reading.

Here are some ways to reinforce your child's reading skills at home:

Spend time reading everyday.

Make reading easy -- eliminate distractions like the radio, tv, etc.

Read aloud to your child.

Look for unusual places to read like under a tree, in the car, or on the floor.

Schedule a time to read everyday.

Squeeze reading into a busy day by using breakfast, bath time, or while traveling.

Encourage your child to write their own story.
