Reading for Pleasure

The BBC news recently reported on a study by The Institute of Education drawing on research by the always admirable National Literacy Trust. It's about the importance of children reading for pleasure --even maths scores improve, for example, as well as vocabulary and overall educational level. They urge parents to read with their children. Even 10 minutes a day makes a real difference. And they included the following tips for parents:
Even 10 minutes a day reading with your child is a major help
Choose a wide variety of books to introduce different types of language and style
Take turns to read aloud to each other. They can learn from your expressive reading and you can check they are not struggling
Ask questions about the book - maybe about what might happen next or a character's motivation
Make sure they understand any new or unusual words or phrases
Enjoy it - "try and lose yourselves in a good story!"
Now you can go back to Give a Book.

  2. As they say, “the more you read, the more you see”. Reading surely improves cognition, and there is nothing better than instilling a reading habit in your child from an early age. Gifting books to your kids and taking them to their favorite bookstores for book shopping will make them love books more, and why stop there? We should not ignore the power of internet, and there should be something of value to the kids on internet. It would be best if Kids authors volunteered to provide Website Copywriting services for kids websites.

I was looking for a way out for a long time, aka my older brother did not tell me to contact https://uk.bestessays.com/research_proposal_service.html - and everything became cool - the works were written on time, without plagiarism, always a high score. I have never regretted my choice.
