Read­ing can open doors, mak­ing it pos­si­ble for you to learn about dif­fer­ent places, peo­ple, and things. The more you prac­tice your read­ing and writ­ing skills, the bet­ter of a read­er and writer you can be. Although lessons in the class­room are one way of learn­ing, this isn’t the only way you can get stronger read­ing skills. You can also play games and do activ­i­ties with your friends or par­ents to prac­tice read­ing and writing.
