The Importance of Reading
Children at The Lead School spend part of every day silently reading a book of their choice. Reading is important for so many reasons, but recent research indicates that it may be more important than originally thought. The following are just some of the benefits children gain from reading:
1. Reading exercises the brain. Reading is a complex task that not only strengthens brain connections, it actually builds new connections.
2. Reading improves a child's vocabulary and spelling, leading to more highly developed language skills.
3. Reading develops a child's imagination.
4. Children who read for enjoyment do better in school.
It is important that children spend at least 20 -30 minutes a day engaged in reading.
