Twenty Five Habits To Encourage Reading.
Shaughnessy, Michael F.
The development of reading is connected to the development of several habits, habits which once developed, will remain. Some of the habits that will get children reading and instill the habit of reading are: (1) use a book mark; (2) allow kids to read the same book twice; (3) have a dictionary handy and explain its use; (4) have magazines, newspapers, and other reading materials available; (5) read Christmas and other holiday cards with children; (6) write letters to relatives then read the responses together; (7) visit the library once a week if possible; (8) expose children to different forms of writing--for example, plays; (9) when vacationing, read about the destination and about some of the highlights; and (10) be consistent and persistent.
