(NEWS1130) A new study from the University of B.C. suggests there are ways to do the job at home while still having your child learn.
Researchers from the Centre for Continuing Education at the University said it’s easy to take your child out of the classroom when they’re not ready to read.
“In the classroom, they’re learning and are engaged and engaged in a learning process,” says co-author Dr. Elizabeth Hensley.
“And so we’re seeing that that learning process gets disrupted when children are in the library.”
It’s not as simple as just having them read a book, and then have them sit down and start reading again, or have them read in a specific order and then re-read in a different order, or just do it in their own time.
“Researchers found there’s a big divide between those who borrow books in the home and those who use a library, with the majority of people preferring to borrow them from a home library.
Hensley says that could be because people aren’t sure what the books in a library can teach them.”
When you’re a parent, you’re not necessarily sure if you’re going to have a child with a specific reading skill or not,” she says.”
And the more books you have, the more likely you are to have that skill.
“Hens, who is also a research fellow at the Centre, said parents should take into account the book they want to borrow first.”
“If you’re willing to take the time to learn it, you can have a more positive experience with it.”‘”

It found that children who were reading more and were learning faster than their peers were more likely to be reading books on iPads and laptops and had higher scores on tests of literacy and numeracy.
However, when children were given an assignment to read one book in a series, they were more apt to pick up the book in the first book.
“What I’m trying to say is that I’m not sure what these children are going to do with the book because it doesn’t seem like they’re going into a new language, or it seems like they have a different way of thinking about it,” says Hens.
“So, they might have a completely different idea about it.”
