It is very important to expose your student to many types of text. Kids love to read fiction and non-fiction material. Try something new at your home. Encourage your children by being good readers yourself. Set that good example, and create interest in reading traditional books as well as internet based materials. Bring home magazines, comic books, wildlife and fishing guides, gardening books, and newspapers. Share your favorite stories and anecdotes with your family, and don't forget to discuss all of the new words you discover!
