In these busy times, when we don’t even have time to eat breakfast, it isn’t surprising that we have given up on reading … or rather we have forgotten the importance of reading. Reading is the basic foundation on which academic skills of an individual are built. Our education system acknowledges the fact that reading is important for the holistic development of a student, and hence ‘it’ is considered a top priority. Reading doesn’t just enhance the child’s ability to comprehend various concepts with ease, but also develops critical thinking skills.

Educational researchers have found that there is a strong correlation between reading and academic success. Reading helps in mental development and is known to stimulate the muscles of the eyes. Reading is an activity that involves greater levels of concentration and adds to the conversational skills of the reader. It consistently enhances the knowledge acquired. Reading is the single most important skill necessary for a happy, productive and successful life. A child who is an excellent reader is a confident child, has a high level of self-esteem and is able to easily make the transition from learning to read to reading to learn. Learning to read well is an essential life skill that teachers must ensure that their students acquire. So if you want your students to be successful encourage them to read.

I am sure that this list would be of interest to your students.
