Reading Tips for Parents

By: Reading Rockets

A child's success as a reader begins much earlier than the first day of school. Reading, and a love for reading, begins at home. Our one-page Parent Tips offer easy ways for parents to help kids become successful readers. Although we've divided these tips by age, many of them can be used with children at various ages and stages — we encourage you to choose the ones that work best for your child.

Thank you for the tips. Great help. I also found a summer learning program at internet4classrooms.com

These handouts are very helpful. Could they please be made available in French? I serve a growing population of French-speaking Africans.

Tamil and Urdu translations would also be very appreciated - I'm from a multi-cultural early years centre.

It would be wonderful if you could provide tips in French, too! Thanks!

...love all of your resources....please add tips for parents to help 4th and 5th grade students with reading skills
