1. Show them the money
Since I am teaching them finances also this summer, it would work better if they were earning real money.
This trick kills two birds. I get them to read and I teach them the principle of earning and spending. The value of a dollar, banking transactions, and whatnots!
But when homegirl was the one swiping her very own debit card, she was real careful to pick only the things she really needed because she knew she only had $10 and didn’t want the account to go to zero.
This is one of my favorites! win-win!
2.Get them books related to a story they already know
My kids are really excited about the new Disney Descendant movie coming out, I got them the Isle of the Lost series. They are really enjoying finding all deets before the movie comes out.
They feel super special, knowing things ahead of times.
They did the same for the Diary of a wimpy kid the long Haul movie.
3.Ask them to read something out loud for you because you’re busy
I started this whole thing because one of my kids is just not a fan of reading, she won’t be devouring a book cover to cover like her sister. I make sure she gets some reading done first thing in the morning.
Every morning I have her read my devotional to me. I tell her my eyes haven’t adjusted yet, or I’m running outta time. Always works!
It makes them feel important and needed. my little one loves to help!
I get her to read recipes out loud, read things to me while I’m driving. As long as she feels like she helping she doesn’t mind.
4.Keep books in the car and encourage them to read when waiting
