We’re happy to share a few things you can do to help create a consistent and enjoyable reading routine with your children.
Add reading to an existing routine
It’s always easier to incorporate a simple reading activity into a routine you already have with your child. Bedtime is an obvious one, but others can include time before the playtime or right after a mealtime. The key point here is to make it every day. Read in Nicola Reader app and it will show you the days you’ve skipped reading and motivate you to read every day.
Make it fun
Your child should never feel forced to read. It is important that they see it as a positive moment of “play” time. Offer a choice of books and let your child to pick the most interesting one. Read in Nicola Reader app and it will help you to set the playful reading context.
Read for them, read together, read in turns! Choose the children’s books you love to inspire the children with your enjoyment of reading.
Invite a buddy
Have your child choose one of their favorite toys to read with them. It will help them identify this routine as something playful. Nicola reader may also help you in that way, it has a Dino buddy character which grows as you or your children read!
Track reading time or books you’ve read and motivate consistent reading with rewards. Nicola Reader will help you easily set the reading goal and track and even show you a bunch of other funny reading metrics.
