Most parents can vouch that making your kid do some schoolwork over the summer break can be a difficult proposition. In addition to the child’s resistance, it is only normal for parents to feel that their kid deserves a break. However, reading does not have to feel like work. Incorporate your summer activities and plans into reading exercise. If you travel over the summer, learn about the intended destination, have your child do a little bit of research on it and have them read about the place. This way, not only they fulfill the reading requirement, but they make the trip even more fun.
- Set up double sessions for reading both in the morning and evening.
- Take turns providing refreshments, considering smoothies, yogurt pops. nut mix, or cut vegetables.
- Try a library scavenger hunt or just do some library trip prep.
