Chalk Talk: The Importance of Reading
It is an understatement to say that reading is important. Reading is crucial to every aspect of our lives. Many children refuse to read because they complain that it is boring and they have more fun things to do with their time. The problem may lie in two areas. Either they are lacking literacy skills due to a gap in their education or due to a learning problem or they simply have not found a genre of reading that excites their imagination and grabs their attention. If you are certain that the problem is not related to learning gaps or problems then try taking them to a bookstore and letting them peruse the aisles until they find a subject that interests them. Ask them questions about what they like before you go. Then steer them in that direction. Once they pick a book out ask them questions related to comprehension such as; What are the main characters like? What do you think will happen at the end of the book? Can you explain why that is happening? Pushing your child to read something they are not interested in will not improve their reading skills it will only cause then to further hate reading and view it as a chore.
