Keep Kids Reading Through the Holidays!

Keeping kids occupied can sometimes be a challenge. Keeping them focused and learning, especially around the holiday season, can seem like more of a challenge. With the holidays right around the corner, kids can often be distracted with the idea of new toys and gadgets that they would like to receive this holiday season. It may feel like a struggle to get kids to read or do something educational when they are more interested in festivities and games. While celebrating is still certainly important and can yield some valuable family time, it is still possible to get kids to read and think critically this season, and they may not even know that they are doing it!

No matter what you celebrate, kids will be receiving some gifts and treats this holiday season. Kids love the idea of receiving new things, especially toys and games. They may have already made their holiday wish list! Making a wish list is certainly a great way to keep kids writing, but if parents want to get kids to think more critically and creatively, parents can ask their children to elaborate. Why do you want this toy? What sort of games are you looking forward to playing? Who would you like to share your gifts with? What would be the perfect gift for your siblings/cousins/parents/grandparents? By completing an exercise like this, kids can use their imagination to answer questions while also using their reading comprehension skills to craft a coherent and explanative answer.
Parents can also use reading to play games. Leading up to the holidays, parents will be gathering their children’s gifts and presents. As parents get new gifts, they can leave little clues and riddles for their kids. Write from the point of view of Santa Claus or another figure to leave hints around the house, under the tree, by the menorah or even under children’s pillows to help get them excited. Not only will kids love learning about what they may be getting, but they will be actively reading and thinking as well.
Parents can also ask their kids to write about their favorite holiday traditions. They can then share their answers with the rest of the family. What they write may make for a great arts and crafts project that parents can incorporate into their holiday décor or to include in the family’s photo album or scrapbook to remember for years to come.

How Many Books Can You Read Before the Holidays?

November has just begun, but as many commercials would like to have us believe, the holiday season is fast approaching. When we think of the holidays, we think of family, friends and the exchange of gifts. Kids tend to get the most excited about the gift giving, and many parents tend to use this factor as a motivator to help keep kids well behaved.  Kids are told that if they listen, do as they are told, and use their manners that they will receive gifts once the holidays finally roll around. This is a great incentive, so why not apply it to education as well?
Considering that it is already November, kids are also now in the full swing of school. A few months in the classroom can already have some kids feeling restless and tired of their routine. To keep kids on task and to keep them reading, most importantly, setting up a holiday reading incentive can help keep kids interested in learning.
Along with encouraging kids to behave and act good all year round, encouraging kids to set a book goal for the holiday season can be a great idea. Kids greatly look forward to the holiday season and even reluctant readers may be more willing to read if they have more of a reason to do so. Personalized books from can help entice kids to keep reading. Children tend to be more interested in reading material if the story relates to their lives. It can be about a similar situation that they are in, the upcoming season, or about what they are learning in school, especially if the book is all about them!
