Dear Parents,

As we wrapped up the annual reading challenge, on behalf of the Happy Kids faculty staffs, I would like to THANK YOU all for keeping up the reading at home with your little one. Just because we completed the challenge does not mean we are doing with our daily reading. Please continue to keep up the good reading habit as part of your daily routines; it's very important for your little one getting enough of that reading exposure. 

As for reading, it's more than just you doing storytelling with your child. It can turn into a Q&A session, as well as using the illustrations to make up your own story (especially when reading with younger children, between the age of 2 to 4). As you all know, reading fluency takes up years of practice and exposure to be accumulated. If you haven't done much reading with your child, it's never too late to start. Try to begin with 5-minute reading time, and gradually move on to 10 to 15 minutes per day. I firmly believe that you, as a parent, will for sure see the progress along the way. If you would like to know more about what you can do when reading to/with your child, please don't hesitate to reach out! I am only a phone call/email away!
