It’s scientifically proven that a child’s reading skills are important to their success in school, work, and life in general. And to help your child become a reader, you must ensure to start reading to them at a very early age. Whether it is a classic novel or fairy tale before bed, reading aloud or together with children has innumerable benefits that can support them to be future-ready! Reading is not an option in your child’s life but it’s a very essential component of their overall development!
Reading is a fun and imaginative activity for children — opening doors to all kinds of new worlds! Reading and language skills begin to develop right from the start. The earlier children grasp the habit and concept of reading, the easier they learn to read, and the easier it is to learn.
Research has identified five early reading skills that are essential to learning:
To nurture the habit of reading in growing readers, it’s very important to help them read by hand-holding as well as demonstrating – be it reading together, reading aloud, or simply helping them with words as they read.
Another way to build a habit of reading and help them learn to read is by enrolling your child into a structured Reading program. These types of programs help your child to read, spell, comprehend and build a habit of reading for life.
The benefits of reading in a child’s development are many! As per research, some of the benefits of reading are listed:
The above only reiterates the fact that reading is essential in the life of any child or adult and also plays a vital role in their success.
My Chapter One conducts Reading Programs for children between the ages of 3.5 to12 years in its Reading Gym. These Reading programs are aimed toward not just helping your child to read but also building a strong foundation for reading, developing a fondness for books, and also improving comprehension and writing skills. At My Chapter One Reading Gym, we don’t just teach your child to read & love books, we also make them future-ready!
The Reding Gym has different programs depending on the level and age of your child. The three levels that My Chapter One has identified basis the reading level & age of a child are: Early Readers (Ages 3.5-6), Emerging readers (Ages 6-9) & Independent (Ages 9-12).
These levels have been identified keeping in mind the Reading journey of a child. Learning how to read is a sequential and a step-wise process. It builds gradually – from learning to identify sounds, to blending sounds and converting words into sounds known as decoding and then eventually start reading and finally being able to comprehend and be able to read between the lines. The more a child reads, the more fluent he becomes as a reader. And as they read more, they will embrace it, it becomes as essential as oxygen in their lives.
Reading exposes children to new things, ideas, and information, and equips them to become effective problem solvers. Sometimes, reading ends up being a hobby for many people, or even a career.
Reading also forms a fundamental part of self-improvement for children. Through it, your child will have a better understanding of the world around them. Through this vital activity, your child will gain a deep understanding of various topics and may develop an interest in a genre that is of interest to them.
Reading takes children from their own world to another - they become immersed in the lives of fictional characters and learn about a culture entirely different from their own. If this is not exposure, then what is!
So, it would only be fair to say that Reading is a powerful, fulfilling, and rewarding activity that is not optional but an essential ingredient in your child’s overall development. The next time your child opens a book, remember, it’s not just a book, it is a friend, a teacher, a travel ticket - which can teach your child about themselves, the world, and the cultures within it! Reading is something all parents and teachers must encourage for a brighter future!
Reading should not be presented to children as a chore or duty. It should be offered to them as a precious gift.– Kate DiCamillo
