Read to your child
Read to your child every day. Reading to your child is the best preparation for school readiness. Choose books that have rich vocabulary and great illustrations. Sit and cuddle while you read, make this your special time together. Focus on your relationship, concentrate on your child for those 10 -20 minutes.
Children you are read to daily come into school with a bigger vocabulary , better comprehension and more confidence. They are also better listeners.
Let your child see you read as well, whether it is a newspaper, magazine, or even your e reader. Help your child understand that reading opens the door to knowledge.
Libraries are a wonderful place to take your child to choose books, the librarians can help you find great books on subjects that interest your child too.
