Your child starts to build reading skills long before they enter school. There are small things you can do to power-up their learning to be a future ReadStrong reader.
- Talk to your child – talk slowly to your child, ask questions, and show expressions.
- Read to your child – make it fun to read 20 minutes to your child every day.
- Sing to your child – babies and young children love music and movement.
