You know THAT child. The other children read their assignments without complaint. They even read books on their own for fun. Not THAT child. THAT child is rolling around the floor crying like they are being beaten because you had the audacity to ask them to read a paragraph out loud. The other children finished their school work a hour ago and THAT child is still refusing to read that same paragraph. Getting THAT child to read a book for fun? Ha! THAT child wouldn't read a book for fun if you taped $100 to the back page. So, you do know THAT child? I have THAT child, too. He's very intelligent, does math in his head like it's nothing, remembers everything you tell him, can build anything, and refuses to read almost anything. This is in such contrast to my daughter who is voracious reader. Her entire homeschool experience has almost all revolved around books. Having her first made me panic that something was wrong with my son. As time has gone on, I realize that he is just fine. THAT child just has different likes and ways of learning. In a homeschool setting, we have the ability to try new approaches to learning whenever we deem it necessary. This is a huge reason why we homeschool - to teach our kids according to their interests, abilities, and learning styles. This might mean that you need to have different approaches with different children. And, that's ok. Here are some methods to try with THAT child to get them excited about reading.
