A new year means a fresh start! It also means back to school, be it a new school year or term. It’s the ideal time to make some ‘reading resolutions’ for the year.
Reading is a fun and engaging activity that you can do with your child every day. Here are a few ideas for the year. And remember, all of these resolutions can be adapted for the adult reader as well!
- Read every day: This one’s nice and easy! One book or chapter a day before bed is a great way to relax and spend quality time with your child.
- Have a library day: Make time every week (or fortnight) to visit your local library. Most libraries have a great children’s section with regular activities. Let your child choose the books that appeal to them and have a special bag just for library books.
- Start a book club: This one’s great for older children who love sharing their ideas. Activities and field trips related to the content in the books can bring the concepts in the stories alive.
- Make a reading list: Look forward to all the great books you haven’t read yet by filling out a reading list. Here are some fun and colourful book lists to download and print:
