Give your child a learning boost with these boredom-beating tips from Janet Smith, lifelong educator and reading instructor
— Go to the library regularly with your children and help them select books on their own level.
— Each evening, allow your child to read to you and/or you to them. “They not only enjoy the attention, but you will raise their reading level,” says Smith.
— Make reading a game. Have your children read labels to you from products in the home, or let them read a recipe to you while you cook.
— Act out, not up with a game of charades, allowing your children to dramatize words appropriate to their ages.
