Noting that parents can open a door to a big, exciting world when they help their children learn to read, this information sheet lists some things parents can do to encourage their children to read and presents a series of reading activities. The information sheet notes that parents can: (1) read aloud to their children; (2) read poems aloud; (3) point to words as they read; (4) listen to their children read homework; (5) go to the library with their children; (6) have reading materials around the house; (7) encourage older children to read to younger children; and (8) help experienced readers talk and write about what they read. The information sheet presents three activities for young children involving reading over and over again, two activities for beginning readers to make sense of sounds, and three activities for more advanced readers to read together.
