                         Discover The Pros and Cons of Homeschooling

  As a homeschooler one of the most important tasks for you to accomplish in your child at an
   early age is getting them interested in and developing good reading habits. At an early age
 learning to recognize letters, the sounds they make and words they eventually form should be
   an activity and not a structured assignment. A great reading activity for kindergarten aged
                             children, for example is to read to them.

A natural progression in your reading activities with your children is that after you read them to a
   passage from the story; have them paraphrase the story back to you. This will help you to
understand what level of listening ability and understanding they are at, as well has help them to
     begin building their vocabulary as they work to find new words they can use with their
                       description of the story they are giving back to you.

Good reading activities don’t always have to occur at the house, or just before bedtime. While
  you’re running errands around town or on vacation, perhaps have the kids begin to collect
words from signs, or spell objects they see. Encourage them to learn different ways to describe
  objects see. Instead something big, it may by huge, or enormous... or even of gargantuan
   proportion! Have you child arrange the words they have collected into silly sentences or
phrases. Even something as simple as collecting letters from signs, license plates, and such to
       work their way through the alphabet is a good kindergarten age reading activity.

  Not in the car, or travel around much? Use every day items around the house to do the same
thing. Labels, there are plenty of labels around the house. Actually put labels on everyday items
   around the house so your child can associate the spelling, and reading with a tangible item.
Then, after a while, take the labels off the items and help your child read and re-label the house.

Once you get your creative juices flowing, you’ll come up with many more reading activities. The
 key is to make reading activities an every day part of their life. Make an effort to spend an hour
    a day reading more with an hour less of television. T.V. is an extremely passive thought
processing activity. While reading and using one’s imagination is a source of growth and a great
                                  foundation from which to build.
