Parents and others always ask, "Why should my child read at home?"
The following information illustrates why reading is so important. I do not know the author or I would give credit. I was Student A and I feel I did well in school.
-Student A reads 20 minutes a day which is 3,600 minutes per school year and is exposed to 1,800,000 words per year and scores in the 90th percentile on standardized tests.
-Student B reads 5 minutes a day which equals 900 minutes per school year and is exposed to 282,000 words per year and scores in the 50 percentile on standardized tests.
-Student C reads 1 minute per day which equals 180 minutes per school year and is exposed to 8,000 words per year and scores in the 10th percentile on standardized tests.
Want your child to be a better reader? Simply have them read.
I love the following quote:
"If a child memorizes ten words, the child can only read ten words, but if the child learns the sounds of ten letters, the child will be able to read 350 three-sound words, 4,320 four-sound words, and 21,650 five-sound words." - Dr. Martin Kozloff
