Use the Technology
In addition to these activities, it’s important to use the technology that is available. There has never been a better time to get kids excited about reading. Using the iPad, educational reading and writing apps, and endless multimedia tools, you can inspire and motivate your child to get creative. It all starts with a good book.
Amazon Kindle offers a wide selection of books for kids and many authors contribute new books weekly.
To encourage your child to read and write more, utilize all of the tools and encourage your child to read, explore and create. Make reading fun. Use videos and photos, podcasts, and other materials to increase their interest level in books. Find a topic they like such as flowers, car mechanics or astronomy and check out books on these topics.
Books are, after all, more than words on a page. They represent an entire world of opportunity. All you have to do is open the door.
