While she was younger, she liked to be read to. As she got older, I would read a sentence out loud, then she would read a sentence back to me. We then gradually progressed to paragraphs, and then on to pages. If you're able to get your kids to read with a little help from you, he's still reading (though not silently). When N* first started to read aloud, she'd just run through the words in a big rush. I'd ask her to paraphrase what she'd read through, and she wasn't always sure. So, when it was my turn, I'd make sure I paused at commas and at the end of the sentence. I would also use different voice for different characters. As she got older, she'd mimic what I was doing. Silent reading is still a chore for her, while I'd read the back of a cereal box if there was nothing else close by. I'm a crazy person without something to read every day.
