I can’t believe that it is already time for get ready for back to school. I have three kids that will be in school this year. That is going to be challenging but fun. One of the things that I am looking forward to most is having our routine back so we can get back to a more structured routine. Summer makes it easy to throw things out the door because we are so busy all the time, but it will be nice to get back to “normal”. One of those things is having reading time before bed every night. I love reading and so I want my kids to also develop a great love for literature. There are many ways you can get your kids interested in reading, and I wanted to share a few with you. As you can see, my oldest loves reading over a bowl of cereal in the morning (just like I do). 🙂
Here are 5 ways to get your kids interested in books:
- Make sure they have a great selection of books at home to choose from
- Visit the library so they can pick from a variety and styles of books to read
- Have an assigned time where everyone in the family sits down together for 20-30 minutes and reads
- Read with your child, have your child read to you, so that you can make sure they are able to read what they have and understand it.
- Create a rewards chart that they can track their reading on and get a reward at the end. This encourages reading and it will soon become a “want-to” instead of a “have-to”.
I would love to hear ways you get your children to read and get them interested in books. If you don’t have very many books at home, or want to add more to your collection, you will want to pick up specially marked Kellogg’s products at Walmart (or online at Walmart.com). I was able to find quite a few things for my family for school morning breakfasts and each product qualifies for a free Scholastic Book through Kellogg’s Family Rewards.
Did you know you can buy select Kellogg’s products from Walmart.com or in-stores and then upload a copy of your receipt to Kellogg’s Family Rewards and redeem them for free books for your kids? Easy to do and a great way to build their reading library. #back2schoolready #backtoschool #back2school #ad #reading #books #booksforkids #kelloggs #rewards #family #walmart
Then you will upload your receipt and it will give you a credit for a free book! There are so many to choose from, for all age groups. It can take up to eight weeks to get the books, but they will be worth the wait! Other ways to enter the receipt are by texting it or entering it through the Kellogg’s Family Rewards app. This is valid only when you purchase ONLINE between 7/21 – 9/11.
