Some kids love to read. But it can be difficult to motivate a child who doesn’t love to read. It may even seem impossible. But it doesn’t have to be. Children who are motivated to read will actively seek out books to enjoy and are happy reading quietly by themselves. When children are motivated, they read frequently, which in turn helps them become skilful readers. And children who are skilful readers learn well and deeply and successfully. At ''Vidyarpan''- The Digital Preschool in India kids are brought into confidence and are motivated by their teachers to read and learn. With its state-of-the-art infrastructure it is the best play school in Faridabad and one of the best play school in India providing low investment preschool franchise opportunity for aspiring entrepreneurs.

There are many reasons that kids don’t enjoy reading. But before working on motivating a child, it helps if we understand why he resists reading in the first place which might bring us another problem. ONE A child who must work at reading is not likely to find reading fun, like if a child has issues with fluency or maybe he’s struggling because he’s guessing at words or hasn’t developed strong vocabulary skills. If your child feels that reading is too much work, try to begin by identifying and addressing his areas of weakness. As he becomes a better reader, he will grow to enjoy reading much more. TWO For some kids, reading isn’t hard, but it isn’t fun either which may be because they haven’t found reading material that motivates them. So, think about what your child loves to do. By finding reading material that matches their interest and draws them into reading you are already half way there. There are some ways which can make reading fun for the kids.

Make time- If you and your child have a hectic schedule then reading all the way becomes uneasy. Making time from such a schedule is important for the kids.

Shared reading- Shared reading or reading as a collective experience could entail taking turns reading pages, sections or chapters, or you and your child silently reading the same book. Shared reading can be very helpful in stimulating interest.

Introducing books- Kids who grow up with books all around them learn to think of books as friends and allies in their pursuit of adventure and learning.

Encouraging- Making them buy new books or giving their favourite ice cream or chocolate on buying a new book or finishing one will encourage them in buying one.

Reading area- Work with your child to make a reading area he’ll want to hang out in with lamps, beanbags, posters which sets the mood for fun.
