Parenting Articles - Parental Involvement Is A Key In Reading Improvement

Across England and Wales, 16% of 11-year-olds failed to reach the expected level or better in reading.

Maybe this is due to the rapid growth of technology. Most kids these days just glue their eyes on electronic gadgets and the television. Not only will this lead to being solidarity, it may also affect their reading skills. Parents should supervise and limit the number of hours their kids spend with those. They should encourage theit children to read short stories. It really helps a lot.

As a kid, my parents will read to us stories before bed. Not only did it nourished our imaginations, it made us curious about reading and this resulted in our parents teaching us how to read in an early age. Reading in class is never enough. Occasionally reading at home helps too, it gives children a boost of confidence in their reading skills.

An excerpt from the ChildUp Blog:
"Children going in to school who have been read to as infants; children who share stories with their parents; children who go in to school with a wide vocabulary and an understanding of stories and how stories work and how the world works are at a huge advantage."

Happy Holidays to all!!
