Encouraging Literacy at Home

 

Want to get your middle schooler reading, but not sure where to start? Here are a few tips for encouraging literacy at home.

1. ASK about what they are reading! Your student can learn a great deal from talking about what they are reading in school. Ask their opinions about the texts and whether or not they would make good movies.

2. SHOW them that you’re a reader, too. Whether it be contracts for work, the daily newspaper, or the newest New York Times best seller, modeling reading habits will naturally encourage your children to read.

3. EXPLORE real-life reading at museums, the Woodruff Public Library, or a local coffee shop. Go see a movie that is based on a book!
