The second strength from Every Child A Super Reader is curiosity. When you are reading with your child how often do you take time to think about the topic in the book? How often does your student ask questions that requires them to look outside the book for answers? Most books give readers a snapshot of an event, culture, time era, and/or location. Does your child ever want to go deeper into these things? How can you help encourage them to feed their own curiosity? One of the simplest ways is just giving them time to think about their book and ask questions. Then encourage them to find the answers; they could search on the internet, they could go to the library and find more books about the topic, they could ask someone older, research can be done in a variety of ways. When a child is truly interested they don’t care about a timer being set they will get lost in their topic and be excited for each new piece of information. Here is a great hand out from the book with ideas on how to support your child’s curiosity at home.
