Get ready now for March 2, 2015!
Read to someone you love.
Some ideas for celebrating National Reading Month:
- You can have your child read aloud to you for 15 minutes every day in March.
- YOU can read to your child for 15 minutes every day in March.
- You and your child can set aside time to read your own books silently side-by-side this month.
- Visit your public library with your children this month.
- You and & child make a chart to fill in each book he or she completed during March.
- Invite a friend over for a quiet afternoon of reading good books. Your friend can bring some favorites.
- If your child knows how to read, have the child read to an older person this month.
- If your child doesn’t yet read, have the child “read” to an older person this month.
- Children can draw pictures of favorite characters; post them on the fridge or in his or her room.
- Your child can make a book of his or her family. You can write the words if the child isn’t ready to.
- Your child can read to a relative, friend, or neighbor’s younger child: makes the child feel grown up.
- Maybe your child will change some other child’s life through reading.
