Improve Reading While Enjoying the Sun

Summer is a great time to get outdoors and enjoy the sun! The sun-filled time is also well spent learning and preparing for the new year. However, who said that the two couldn’t be mixed together? Below is a great post from The Tutoring Center, Pearland to get your student enjoying their summer break while learning.

Reading Picnic

It’s no surprise that many students aren’t thrilled about the prospect of reading. However, this often isn’t because they dislike the task and is simply because they are largely told what to read by their teachers. Break this view with a reading picnic! The first place to start is your kitchen where you can pack everything that you will need for a successful and enjoyable picnic at your local park. Once you are on your way, make a stop at your local bookstore and allow your student to choose a book of their liking. Once they have decided, buy two copies. After you have both enjoyed some games and some time playing on the equipment, it’s time to get to reading! However, don’t just read until you get tired. Instead, read chapter by chapter. Between each chapter, take a short break to discuss the book, including what happened during the last chapter, who your favorite characters are, and where you think the story is going. You can even make small bets (rewarded by small treats) about what you think will happen in the next chapter. Not only can this help to create a positive connection with reading, it also affords you the opportunity to identify any learning challenges, such as challenges reading common words or even understanding context.
