Charles City, IA – Making sure that children read is very important from a young age. Whether it be a parent taking time to read their child a book, or playing word games with them to keep their brains active. These are important steps in a child’s development.
Charles City elementary schools are doing some new things to help students enjoy reading. Brandy Mutch, first grade teacher, says that her class just started doing Flashlight Fridays to make reading fun for kids.
Some kids might struggle with reading, but Mutch says that one thing parents can do is just make reading more enjoyable.
Children can dislike reading because they think that it is boring, but if parents can make it enjoyable, that would benefit them in the long run.
