Reading in the homeschool is very important. But it is not necessarily the child that needs to do the reading. Sometimes children are not fluent readers at an early or late age, but they can still enjoy the words from a book. Parents can start reading out loud to them in their homeschools so that these children may benefit from characters in fictional stories daily. They may grow to love the stories and as they reach their maturity in reading alone they will also be able to read these books that you read out loud to them. I suggest starting the reading program out loud daily. Pick out books at your local library or you may even get them online in ebook fashion. You will also find that ebooks are easy to locate online with giveaways as well. Take advantage of all the opportunities at your finger tips and give to the next generation by reading out loud. Implement a program in your homeschool and tell your children about it ahead of time. Also you can acquire audiobooks that you can listen to while on errands in the car or even long trips out of town. Reading builds vocabulary no matter what kind of reading you are doing! So get to it folks and enjoy the stories!
