5 Ways to Incorporate More Reading

Mar 31, 2024 by Alexa Bigwarfe, in News & updates

It is so important to incorporate reading in our daily lives. Reading is one of the best ways to help children grow imaginatively as well as emotionally. We hope you find these ideas to incorporate more reading helpful in your home or classroom! 


Create a Reading Corner: Set up a cozy reading nook in both homes and schools, filled with a variety of age-appropriate books. Make it inviting with cushions, bean bags, and good lighting. Encourage children to spend time there regularly, either alone or with friends, to explore books at their own pace.


Family Reading Time: Establish a routine of family reading time at home where everyone, including parents and siblings, gathers to read together. This could be before bedtime or during weekends. Model good reading habits and show enthusiasm for books to motivate children to participate.


Book Clubs: Organize book clubs in schools where children can choose a book to read collectively and then discuss it. Encourage them to share their thoughts, opinions, and favorite parts of the book. This not only fosters a love for reading but also develops critical thinking and communication skills.


Reading Challenges: Introduce reading challenges or contests in both homes and schools to incentivize children to read more. Set achievable goals and offer rewards or recognition for reaching milestones. This can make reading fun and competitive, encouraging children to explore new genres and authors.


Author Visits and Storytelling Sessions: Invite authors or local storytellers to schools for interactive sessions where they read aloud from their books or share stories. Such events can spark children's interest in reading and writing, as they get to meet real-life creators and learn about the creative process behind books.
