2. Crack the books early
Reading is a great predictor of school success, so begin to read with your children long before they know what the words mean. Reading arouses the brain, builds a knowledge base about the world, and serves as the foundation of all future learning, including math and science.
Ensure books are readily accessible in your home, model good study habits by making sure your child sees you reading regularly, and talk to your children about what you are both reading to build conversational and reading comprehension skills.
