Family Reading Hour

summary

For children to become lifelong readers, it's important that they view reading as something that enriches our lives, not just an academic subject in school. One way to accomplish this is by establishing a Family Reading Hour.

Set a time during the day when everyone in your family will devote an hour to reading. The Reading Hour may be the same time every day --say 7:00 pm, or varied daily to meet individual schedules. Family members may choose to read as part of a homework or work assignment or they may pick up a novel, a newspaper or magazine, or even a comic book. The important point is that everyone is engaged in reading at the same time.
