Dear parents and teachers, what will you be reading to your kids this week?
As you already know, Lipa Learning is cultivating early reading habits to help kids develop a lifelong love of books. We encourage parents to read to their little ones and help them develop a habit of every-day reading before they start school. This will help them adapt to school duties more easily. But that is not the only benefit of early reading.
The importance of an early reading habit
What happens with children’s mind once they develop an early reading habit? Reading helps them learn more about the world around them. This is what develops their interest in other cultures and shapes them into open-minded people with a habit of positive thinking, asking questions and seeking solutions.
Early reading develops their vocabulary and improves their concentration. So, how to start instilling the early reading habit? Motivate them. Be a good example yourself and let them take reading as a regular every-day activity the family is doing.
Children develop motivation to read by being read to often, learning firsthand the pleasures that reading can bring
