Step Inside the Story!
If your young reader has trouble remembering the details of a book he just read, or if you just have a disinterested reader, try this activity to jog his memory and keep his interest! Next time your child begins a new book, start a "diary" of important details from the story, like that character's name and the setting, to put your child in the shoes of the character. It will help him become more interested in reading and help boost his memory skills! Use this fun twist on reading so the next time a book report is due he'll have (and remember!) all the information he needs to complete it!
