Turn on the Subtitles

Turning on subtitles while children are watching TV can greatly improve their reading skills. A quick, simple, free way to make TV time, reading time. #turnonthesubtitles

Lockdown has been challenging for everyone in some way or another. For some, learning has been a real issue. One thing that has taken a real knock has been reading. But there is something really simple that everyone can do about it - turn on the subtitles on your TV. Your child/ren will be reading without even noticing they are doing it.

Turning on the subtitles while children are watching television can double the chances of a child becoming good at reading. It’s so brilliantly simple and can help children’s literacy so much that we want to shout it from the rooftops!
