    Read every day.

     

    Read out loud with someone else.

     

    Read about things that you like.

     

    Take a book with you where ever you go.

     

    Read everything you can, like maps, menus, signs, newspapers, and magazines.

     

    Talk about what you've read.

     

    Keep a log of what you've read.

     

    Join a book club.  Clear Creek has Book Clubs for grades 1-5 that run from October through April each year.

     

    There are many other things that you can do to encourage reading, but the main thing is to Read, Read, Read to and with your children.  Don’t make it a chore or something that is all work.  Reading should be enjoyable and we want them to become lifelong readers.  We learn how to read by practicing reading or mimicking what we think readers do, making guesses, mistakes and then rereading what we read.
