Reading for pleasure unlocks the power of information and imagination and helps children discover who they are. Here are a few things you can do to help children develop stronger reading skills and a love for reading:
Set the example. Let children see you read.
Have a collection of books in your home. Update this collection routinely to keep pace with changing tastes and reading skills.
Support our school's Book Fair! Allow children to choose their own books to read.
Our Scholastic book Fair is a reading event that brings the books kids want to read right into our school. It's a wonderful selection of engaging and affordable books for every reading level. Please make plans to visit our Book Fair and be involved in shaping your child's reading habits.
