Is your child is ready to read?

 

Lots of skills have been thought to be essential precursors for reading. But the essential skills are really only a few.

The key questions you need to ask are:

Can my child regularly sit and carry out school like activities for 15 minutes at a time? That indicates that the necessary patience to do the work is present.

Does my child consistently speak in sentences? That indicates that the necessary language is present.

Can my child match shapes? That indicates that the necessary visual skills are present.

Can my child hold crayons or magic markers to create drawings? That indicates that the necessary motor skills are present.

So though seemingly simple, if you answered YES to these 4 questions, then your child is almost certainly ready to read. Try a free, 30-day trial of the Reading Kingdom today!
