Are you curious about how to encourage reading at home? Children are like sponges, absorbing everything around them, including your habits. Modeling and showing reading to your child is a powerful educational tool. In this guide, we’ll explore various ways to support reading at home, from reading aloud to using digital devices for reading. Additionally, we’ll discuss the importance of in-the-moment teaching, teachable moments, and guided reading sessions with a purpose.

In this episode about reading at home, you will learn:

  • Model Reading: Set an example by reading books or digital content in front of your child, showing them the value of reading.
  • Read Aloud: Reading aloud to your child, with a focus on fluency and intonation, is more important than dramatic performances.
  • In-the-Moment Teaching: Capitalize on spontaneous opportunities to teach reading, such as using digital devices for real-time word exploration.
  • Teachable Moments: Find everyday situations to introduce new words and concepts, making learning authentic and memorable.
  • Guided Reading with Purpose: If you engage in guided reading sessions, emphasize skills like sounding out, blending, and fluency to enhance their reading abilities.
