Failure to understand the importance of reading

Most students at this level of education generally perceive studying as a routine and not as something that will be of immense help to them in the future. They therefore approach the reading lessons without any seriousness at all but rather in order to avoid getting into trouble with their parents and the teachers. With such an attitude, it becomes difficult for the child to give reading lessons the attention and seriousness that it deserves.

Lack of suitable books

Some of the books meant for the elementary schools do not auger well with the children in this age. They probably have vocabulary or content that the young children are finding difficult to comprehend. This only discourages them from reading and makes them develop a negative attitude towards it.

Lack of motivation

Motivation plays a bigger role towards inculcating positive reading culture to the children in elementary or primary schools. This is in order to encourage them to view reading as something worthy and not just a routine within the schooling system.

The solution

Despite the numerous reasons that might be responsible for the poor reading habits in elementary schools, there is possibility that these could be reversed. Various reading school assembly programs have done a good job of offering excellent platforms where the children in the elementary schools get taught and encouraged on the importance of reading. But for such programs to be even more successful, a reputable presenter with suitable lessons needs to be invited. One such person who has received a lot of acclamations from many schools all across the Northeast, is Domino the Great.
