Be a List Maker

Making lists with your son or daughter is a fun way to practice reading. You’re in the kitchen making dinner and your five-year-old is playing nearby. You use the last egg. Get a pad of paper, sit down by your child, and say “Want to help me make a grocery list?” Then write E-G-G. Ask your child to draw a picture of an egg next to the word. Post it on the fridge. Voila! Instant reading lesson. When it’s time to go to the grocery store, grab your list and let your son or daughter read it to you as you shop.
