Encouraging reading at home is essential to the success of your child's academic career. We encourage to read to your child every evening if he/she isn't able to read independently. If your child is able to read on his/her own, it is important to listen to him/her read. Ask questions throughout the 20 minute reading block. This will allow your child to process the events or key concepts from the text with you, making it more likely, he/she will retain key information.
