NY Reading Tutor's Tips to Encourage Your Child to Read This Summer, Manhattan, New York

Some children naturally take to reading, devouring book after book year-round. Others are reluctant readers who need more encouragement. Reading in Preschool – New York, a team of experienced reading tutors serving Manhattan, offers the following suggestions to keep kids engaged in reading over the summer.

3 Tips to Keep Kids Reading in the Summer

Participate in Library Summer Reading Programs

Many local libraries organize summer reading programs to encourage children to read during vacation. They may set aside popular books geared toward young readers, set goals kids can aspire to, and reward children who meet benchmarks. This somewhat competitive activity is fun and challenging enough to offer a feeling of accomplishment without causing discouragement.

Read to Your Child

Reading tutors in New York, NYMost children love hearing stories, so reading aloud is a terrific way to instill a habit of reading for pleasure. You can switch roles periodically to encourage kids to read themselves. After you read a chapter, ask your child if he or she would read the next chapter to you. If your child struggles, a qualified reading tutor can help.

Create Your Own Reading List

If your library doesn’t have a summer reading program, create a customized reading list and set benchmarks of your own. Keep track of your child's progress and offer rewards for completing a certain number of books.

The suggestions above are often sufficient to keep children engaged with books during vacation. However, if you have a reluctant reader in your household, a reading tutor can often help. Reading in Preschool – New York offers classes targeted at children from ages 2-1/2 to 7 and strives to make learning both fun and challenging.
