- Take advantage of every opportunity to get your child to read... the TV guide, the cake recipe, traffic signs, etc.
- Every evening, spend at least 10 minutes with your child reading. Even when your child knows how to, continue to read him stories. Better yet, read the first page, then he reads the following one, and so on and so forth.
- Allow him an extra 10 to 15 minutes at bedtime to read in bed.
- As a favor, ask him to read a story to his younger sibling. It will make him feel extremely proud!
- Leave your child some cute little notes in his lunch box.
- Purchase some books that pertain to your child's interests and passions, and let him read what he enjoys, even if that means comic books.
- Subscribe your kid to a children magazine. He will be super excited to receive a surprise every month and will make him so pleased to get mail addressed to him. (Free Lego Club Magazine Subscription)
- Register your little one to the local library and turn it into a family outing.
- Ask a relative to write to him by mail or email.
- Play games that call for vocabulary skills, like for example Scrabble Junior and The Hangman.
