Learning to read can be a crazy roller coaster ride of ups and downs for first graders. It’s an adventure…and an undertaking, too. But most importantly, it’s a meaningful and exciting trip that you can take with your first grader.
So give your young reader the support and motivation he needs to keep on reading. Set a reasonable weekly reading goal for your child—perhaps 4 to 5 books a week—and then give your child lots of encouragement to help him reach that goal. Here’s a little bag of tricks with some ways you can show your support and create memorable connections to reading!
What You Need:
- A gallon-size resealable plastic storage bag
- Small objects that can be related to reading, for example: a compass (because reading takes you places!), a small package of markers, a bouncy ball, candy, a magic spring, a packet of seeds, a glow bracelet or a small flashlight, a pair of sunglasses, batteries and a small pencil sharpener
