Reading Accessories to make any child smile
Does your child have a reading timer? In our house, I try to encourage to kids to read for at least 20 minutes everyday. While it sounds like a simple thing to do, it can be challenging to do remember to and do and to keep track of! A reading timer is a great way for kids to remain accountable and to take their reading time into their own hands. I also really like this bookmark timer that has a dual purpose and won’t get lost!
As children learn to read longer books, it can be a challenge to keep track of where they are on the page. I love the finger highlighter that your child uses to follow along on the page. The highlighter keeps their eyes on the right line and helps them maintain fluency when reading!
A book sleeve is a fun way to keep the book of the day in a special place. Then, when they want to bring it in the car or move it around, it will stay safe in their book bag! It’s a great addition to any holiday gift!
My son has been asking for an Amazon kindle for the holidays. I have been pushing it for a while because I want to make sure that he is going to read everyday on it, but this is definitely on the wish list!
