Resolve to Read in 2019

Resolve to Read in 2019 with Jaime's Book Corner

We’re just over a week into 2019 and some of our New Year’s resolutions may already be veering off track. Don’t let reading with your children be one of them!

I am such a visual person that charts and lists really help hold me accountable with my goals. If you’re like me, print out the image above and hang it somewhere you will see it daily. Color in the books and write the titles your child reads. It will be so fun to see it at the end of the year and talk about all the great books!

Need help getting your child to read more?

  • Check out my fun Winter Reading Challenge! Even if your child is not yet reading independently, the challenges still apply for babies and toddlers.

Need new books?

Not sure how big of an impact reading can make on children? Keep reading for some Top Literacy Statistics from Ferst Readers.

  1. Books contain many words that children are unlikely to encounter frequently in spoken language. Children’s books actually contain 50% more rare words than primetime television or even college students’ conversations.
  2. Young children who are exposed to certain early language and literacy experiences usually prove to be good readers later. Just as a child develops language skills long before being able to speak, the child also develops literacy skills long before being able to read.
  3. Creating a steady stream of new, age-appropriate books has been shown to nearly triple interest in reading within months.
  4. Children’s academic successes at ages 9 and 10 can be attributed to the amount of talk they hear from birth through age 3.
  5. Children who are read to at least three times a week by a family member are almost twice as likely to score in the top 25% in reading compared to children who are read to less than 3 times a week.
  6. Experts are nearly unanimous in stating that babies should routinely experience shared books as soon as they experience shared talking, that is, during the first weeks and months of life.
  7. Children with greater access to books and other print materials express more enjoyment of books, reading, and academics.

Winter Reading Challenge for Kids

The winter is a tough few months for the young ones, especially in the bitter cold parts of the world that make us adults want to just cuddle up and hibernate.

Let me help keep your kiddos busy this winter with my Winter Reading Challenge for Kids!

Reading challenges are a great way to get kids reading more, to challenge them to read different kinds of books, and to connect with new ideas and experiences. Whether your child already loves reading or you have more reluctant readers, this reading challenge is a fun game of finding and reading new books. Doing a challenge like this helps to expand the way a child thinks about reading. It becomes more exciting! If your child finishes the challenge, great! Even if they only read a little more, they’re still broadening their reading horizons. Everyone wins in the end!

If your little one isn’t reading on their own yet, this challenge is still for you. It’s never too early to build your child’s literacy skills. Whether reading independently or with an adult, any time with books makes an immense impact on a child.

Get your free Winter Reading Challenge BINGO now!

If you take the challenge, I’d love to hear how your child enjoys reading different books this winter! For every BINGO my daughter gets, I’m going to give her a little prize. Maybe a new book?
