The ability to read and write is associated with everything we do. Literacy is essential for developing a strong sense of well-being and citizenship. Children who develop strong reading skills perform better in school and have a healthier self-image.
Following up literacy with reading comprehension and activities helps to encourage children to recall and analyze what he or she has read while having fun in the process. Practicing reading comprehension allows children to read with better fluency and learn more from what they read.
Other activities such as puzzles, story starters, and coloring, are great ways to recall stories and open up social interactions.
