Role of Parents in Independent Reading
One of the most important responsibilities of parents is to help students catch the desire to read! Some do this on thei ownr, others do not. Parents and caregivers who themselves read and have books in the home provide powerful reading models for their children. The goal is to have independent readers who enjoy reading and who love reading so that it lasts a lifetime. Here are some ideas:
1- Read aloud often to yoru child.
2- Support your child in his/her reading development.
3- Provide a home library of books, magazines, comics, etc.
4- Help your child to select appropriate reading materials for independent reading.
5- Give books as gifts.
