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.
