Please take time to read with your child at home. This should be a fun activity, so it's important to choose a time when your child is most responsive (ie not immediately before bedtime or during their favourite TV programme!). Find a quiet place to curl up with a book!
This admittedly involves taking time out of often busy schedules. Make sure there are no distractions and that the TV is off. Generally speaking, children should read with an adult. This teaches children that reading is a grown-up thing to do, is valued and is important. If the evening isn't convenient, try reading first thing in the morning instead. Regular reading practise is the key to success. Don’t worry about trying to read the whole book! As your child increasingly accesses longer texts, it would be appropriate to read a few pages well rather than try to race through the whole text.
