Early literacy is a fundamental skill that lays the groundwork for lifelong learning and curiosity. At Wise Wonder, we’re passionate about fostering a love for reading that nurtures young minds to explore, dream, and discover.

Learning to read is a journey filled with challenges and triumphs. Encourage persistence, celebrate progress, and provide reassurance. Each child’s path to reading fluency is unique, but with support and encouragement, they can navigate this journey successfully.

Create a Rich Literary Environment

  • Surround your child with a variety of books that cater to their interests and age level.
  • A home filled with reading materials naturally encourages exploration and curiosity about reading.

Be an Active Reading Role Model

  • Children emulate the behaviors they see.
  • When they observe you reading regularly and enjoying it, they’re more likely to pick up a book themselves.

Interactive Reading Sessions

  • Ask open-ended questions about the plot, characters, and what they think will happen next.
  • This not only improves comprehension but also makes reading a shared adventure.

Encourage Reading Choices

  • Whether it’s a trip to the library or selecting from a home collection, allowing them to pick what interests them fosters a sense of ownership and motivation to read.

Incorporate Reading into Daily Routines

  • Set aside a dedicated reading time each day.
  • Consistency helps build a habit, making reading a natural part of their daily life.
