Parents are kids’ first teachers.
From the time a child is born, home is where learning begins.
5 simple and fun things parents can do
to get their kids ready for school.
Reading! Talking! Singing! Playing! Writing!
Reading: Before your baby can read, she/he needs to be familiar with the written word. Your baby needs to look at words, play with books and watch you read. Research shows that kids who see their parents read will be readers too.
LEARNING NEW WORDS
Read a variety of books to your children and talk about new words. As children increase their vocabularies, they also increase their reading comprehension.
