How can I encourage reading?

Build a Time Machine!

Having trouble getting your child to enjoy reading and your homeschool language arts curriculum? Setting up a fun reading environment that appeals to your childs interest and imagination will make the act of reading more appealing to him or her. Reading on the kitchen table isn't even fun for you, so why should it be for your child?

For example, one of the best things we have done to encourage reading was to build a time machine! We covered a refrigerator box with aluminum foil, and added all sorts of knobs. We even found some very "time machine looking" things at a thrift store, to make it look even better. After putting a bean bag chair and small bookshelf in there, we were finally set to travel in time with our reading.

Make reading fun.
