Help Us Spread the the Literacy Love

Posted by ruckusholly on March 15th, 2012

 Children Discovering ReadingDo you know any elementary, preschool or reading teachers? Or moms with great practical ideas for helping kids love to read? Or do you, yourself, have awesome tips to share – certain times of the day when you get your kids reading or strategies to inspire their love of reading?  We want to feature your tips with our fans!

We’re sure that  you (or people you know) have some tricks up your sleeve to help kids and families fall in love with reading — or practice reading basics without making it feel like work (or homework!).  Tips can be for emerging, beginning or independent readers — or feel free to send suggestions for all three!  They should be short and sweet (100-300) words and the more practical, the better.

Here are a few examples of the kinds of tips we’re looking for:

Introduce children to reading by showing them words that are important to them, such as their names. Encourage them to find the letters in their names whenever they encounter print—on a sign, in a book, and so on. After your kids are familiar with their own names, introduce the names of other members of your family.

Encourage tactile learners by having children practice writing letters in shaving cream on the table. Or try writing in sand, rice, or pasta. Get creative! What do you have around the house that your child could write in?

Help your child practice rhyming by inviting them to make up new verses to nursery rhymes or their favorite songs.  This could also help kids learn to match syllables to fit within the rhythm of a well-known song.

Even if your child cannot yet read, encourage them to become an active participant in the reading process by looking at the pictures and telling the story based upon what they see.  While your child is telling the story, ask questions to gauge understanding of key details in the story.

Email your creative reading tip and photograph to TeacherTips@RuckusMediaGroup.com or ParentTips@RuckusMediaGroup.com (whichever is applicable), if selected, we will credit the submission with your name and image, and post a link directly to your site or school if you’d like. Plus, you’ll also be eligible to receive a $10 iTunes gift card to select your choice of stories from the Ruckus library.  All the rules are featured here.

Don’t miss out on this great opportunity to get exposure, an iTunes gift card and to share your love of reading with us and our community.
