Daily Reading Homework . . . Every Minute Adds Up!
09/11/2013 Published by: Suzanne
Many of us have fond memories of reading to our kids when they were little. Although we can always chose to read aloud to them (no matter how old they get) the time eventually comes when children need to read on their own.
Reading is such an important skill that carries over to every other part of a child’s education. Falling behind in this area can impede their progress in others (like math and science) if they have difficulty reading instructions, problems, assignments, etc.
The graphic below powerfully illustrates how the number of minutes a child spends each day reading compounds into a huge cumulative difference compared to their peers who chose to read fewer minutes per day . . .
So pick up a book . . . 20 minutes a day will add up to reading success!
