How to cultivate reading habit at younger ageIt is a common advise to parents to cultivate reading habit in kids. Parents too interested to do it. But how to introduce that good habit in kids is a biggest question. The very first doubt arise among parents is, at what age kids should start reading? Kids from 4 years can read. Now a days the early education begins with phonics learning. This helps kids to learn the sounds of the letters, soon they move on cvc words(3 letter words).
There are level reading books that are designed specially for beginners. Each level has some 4 or 5 books. The book begins with simple 3 letter words and pictures to blend letter words. If practiced well, the kids will finish 7 levels before 6 years old. They can read anything then. Their vocabulary will also be well improved. Once they learnt the sounds of letters, their interest to read will automatically increase, thus the love for books, reading and learning will simultaneously increase.
Parents should spend time in reading books for themselves and for kids. Kids whose parents read books are creating interest in their kids by their action. Also, have a collection of colorful books at home. Slowly it will attract them and they begin reading by themselves. Many kids will build their own story by seeing the pictures in the book, encourage them. Let them get bored with the their own stories, they will come back to you to read it for them, do it patiently, then they will imitate you. Soon they will end up reading on their own. It may be some 1 year process too, but the end result is fruitful forever.
