At this stage, reading becomes connected with hard work of your cutie pie rather than pleasure. Your sweetie pie is 7 years old now, when you will notice that he starts developing visual literacy skills. Visual literacy means that your kiddo can now ‘read’ and interpret graphs, tables, maps and diagrams. And he can also recognise symbols and logos, icons such as KFC, Nike or Domino's.
What you need to know
At this point, you and the home environment become crucial to your kid's school success. Your little one now begins to recognise many words, and he knows how to make sense of these words. He begins to try new things in reading. For example, he will start reading your e-mails, his comics and other children magazines. This is a positive sign that your child is heading towards accuracy in reading.
