Talk is central to all aspects of literacy development.

  • Modelreading to your child. It is important for your child to see you
  • reading for real purposes and enjoyment.
  • Continue to read to your children even when they can read independently.
  • Make a time in your daily routine when you and your child are relaxed, to read
  • together. This reading time (10 – 15 minutes each day) should not be stressful,
  • rushed or tested.
  • Support your child’s reading choices. Find ways to read texts that they want to
  • read. This may include comic books, computer programs, graphic novels or
  • magazines. Remember, easier texts help children to automatize reading
  • strategies and skills, allowing for deeper comprehension and understanding to occur.
  • Promote reading. Use books, audio books and electronic books as rewards,
  • gifts and incentives.
