10. Read to your children or get books on tape for them. Young adult literature is wonderful! Once you start reading with your children, you'll love it! The key is having them follow along. Following along with a proficient reader is a great way to improve one's reading and listening skills. However, if they don't follow along, the only thing that will improve is their listening skills.
11. Have your children read to a younger sibling, friend, cousin, or neighbor. First, have them practice reading a picture book 2-3 times . Then have them read it to someone younger. You can even time them to prove how much faster and better they read it each time. There are lots of great picture books out there on lots of different reading levels!
