Find ways to make reading and storytelling an adventure. Make it something special and enjoyable.
Have your child find special places to read. Make forts, read while having a snack.
If your child is a beginning or early reader take turns reading with them with some of these strategies: My Turn Your Turn where you take turns reading a paragraph or page. Choral Reading where you read at the same time. Echo Reading where you read first and your child echoes the same sentence or paragraph you just read. Act It Out where you act out the story together or pretend to be characters in the story and read the lines.
Tell stories together. They can be family stories, stories from when you or they were young, stories you heard when you were a child, build stories together by taking turns coming up with one word or one sentence and passing to the next person.
Listen to stories or educational podcasts.
Watch a family movie and talk about the characters, setting, plot. What made it a good story? Did anything in the story remind you of something in your family or life?
