How are you? Have you ever had a child who didn’t like to read? Is reading difficult for your child? When I was teaching kindergarten, I saw students who struggled to read.
There are many reasons that students struggle to learn. Sometimes, it is lack of interest or a learning disability. Other times, it could be that others have dissuaded learning for some reason. People can be cruel at times and pick on others for learning or not learning quickly enough. Learning can seem “boring” to some.
Whatever the reason for the lack of learning, it is sometimes helpful to let a student know that he or she is not alone. It is nice to know that others struggle also at one thing or another.
Another strategy to help encourage learning is to make a game out of the material. Make learning fun. This can mean doing things like, talking and teaching while doing something physical or reading stories about various subjects or creating a treasure hunt with facts and questions. It can mean reading stories and discussing facts or creating an adventure.
So, a while back, I wrote a children’s book about a boy who doesn’t like to read. The other kids in school make fun of him, because he isn’t very good. His feelings are hurt and he doesn’t even feel like trying any more. His mother ends up turning things around for him. She makes reading fun. What book do I mean? The book is “Johnny’s Adventure Makes Reading Fun” by Jodi Desautels.
Some reasons for reading difficulty aren’t helped as easily as others. However, I wanted children to know that they aren’t alone and that reading can be fun. That is why I wrote “Johnny’s Adventure Makes Reading Fun”.
If you have a child who doesn’t like to read or has difficulty reading, you may want to try reading “Johnny’s Adventure Makes Reading Fun” to him or her. It has helped others and could help your child as well.
Now, it is your turn.
I am glad you are here. What are your strategies for working with a child who doesn’t like to read? Leave a comment, so we all can learn from each other.
