​Reading for Enjoyment Postcard
 At Tinana SS,  we know that the more your child reads, the better at reading they will become.
Attached in the Support and Resources area on our website you will find some strategies to encourage you and your child to enjoy reading.

Switch the next generation on to reading
The active encouragement of reading for pleasure should be a core part of every child’s education.  Reading opens doors to our inner and outer worlds, which can provide us with a lifetime of enjoyment. Research evidence demonstrates that reading for enjoyment is important for educational, social and personal development. It can have a major impact on children and adults achieving their life goals and raising their self-esteem. 
Reading for enjoyment can be done anywhere!  It doesn’t have to be at a table or a desk.  Take your book into the garden or relax on the lounge while you read with your child.  You could also read your own book while your child reads.  Talk about the book afterwards to find out what they thought of it…… Build on your child’s reading journey gradually and watch them take flight.
