How to Motivate a First Grader to Read

Sometimes, first graders can be finicky about what they read. After all, many children in this age group are focused on enunciating correctly. Who has time to pick interesting content?

Many children who suffer from comprehension or inference skills gain a new sense of motivation from meeting with a reading tutor online. Why? Well, for one, people rarely enjoy things that they struggle through. A good online reading tutor can help your child fill in any gaps that may be causing them to struggle. Once reading is easy, children are able to actually enjoy the story! Teachers and parents often report that meeting with a reading tutor online just 1 to 2 times a week has improved students’ reading ability by as many as 3 grade levels.
