Scholastic has a great interactive house graphic which shows all the areas of your home where you can incorporate reading for your kids. Some of its ideas and information include:
- In the bathroom: reading in the bathtub and using foam letters that stick to the wall in the bathtub
- In the bedroom: drawing and writing are associated with learning to read
- In the kitchen: using a cookbook to find recipes that start with the letter “c”
- In the family room: reading magazine and newspaper articles out loud together
These seem like simple concepts that we all know, but it’s a great reminder that reading comes in many forms and that we need to encourage it from the start. View all their tips in the graphic here.
