Improving Your Child's Reading Level

How well your child reads can determine their academic path. For this reason, The Tutoring Center, West Caldwell has some tips for parents to help improve their child’s reading level without them even know it.

Kitchen Lesson

The first place to start is in the kitchen while you are preparing a meal. If you're following a recipe, ask your student to read it out loud to you. Similarly, if your recipe calls for canned ingredients, ask your children to read out the ingredients list while you prepare the dish. While it may seem strange for children to learn strange scientific words written in an ingredients list or even just a recipe, the lesson is in pronunciation and how to sound out new words when they encounter them. This is a powerful lesson which can help your children in the classroom.

Flyers and Junk

Even though email has well and truly taken over, there is likely still a lot of paper and junk mail which you receive each day. If you aren’t interested in reading any of it, ask your children to do it for you. This could include a letter from your bank about new terms and conditions or even a sale at your local furniture store. Whatever it is, encourage your student to read it to you. Flyers and mail provide great reading material because they include a range of writing styles, such as formal letters right through to entertaining stories. This not only helps children improve their vocabulary but also exposes them to different writing styles which they can utilize.
