Blogger Becky from Sweet Hot Mess guest wrote a post on PlayfulLearning.net about teaching boys to read. I have friends who find tremendous challenge getting their sons to love what they read. In this well written article, Becky sums it up to 5 tips:
1. Get Creative
2. Be Positive
3. Provide Variety
4. Read Together
5. Listen to Books on Tape
6. Talk about what you read.
I love that it really caters to the different ways boys in particular relate to the outside world, generally and perhaps that boys, moreso than girls, may more likely to be distracted by video game play and to select game playing over reading.
Anyway, it was a great read. Head on Over to PlayfulLearning to read the post.
