One thing I found worked well with my son was to read chapter books with him at night; we couldn't get through the whole thing in one night so he started reading them himself to find out what happened....
But mostly I agree with the poster above -- the best thing for the boys is just to find a series they love and then watch them go at it.
My 7.5 yr old likes a few fiction series, but generally prefers non-fiction and semi-comic style books. For example the You wouldn't want to be series. So my advice would also be to try lots of different types of books.
I agree about finding a series book that he likes - there are so many out there.
(depending on the child's age )
Motivations: Types of reward to give your child as he progressing his reading skills and the number of books he had read are subjected to your preferences of reward - monetary.outings,gifts
If a child goes to a regular day school, he will have better exposure to a school library and socially with his peers. Home education requires more stringent discipline and the viable environment and atmosphere(setting) to read.
I will motivate and keep monitoring of a child's reading progress by having a small bookcase/or box
for his books to keep after reading
To start, I will bring the child to a nearby bookstore or public library, let him pick the type of books/book titles, he like to read with my supervision and guidance.
Old greeting cards can also be used to decorate liked a tree with written notes on the blank space - these cards you intend to dispose.
I will have a scrap book or a notebook/diary for a child to write/draw his notes about every book he had read.
Let him write by himself and dated his notes.I will review his scrap book together with him
and at the same time encourage and motivate with sincere compliments.He will learn to be self reliance and independent.
Note: Disregard these tips if they are not useful.
We joined the local library. In the summer break, they run a challenge for kids to read six books while they're off school - it doesn't matter what type of book - fiction, non-fiction, comic style, chapter, even the very simple early readers for those just starting. Each time they return the book, they tell the librarian something about it and get a sticker to put on a wall chart - if they get through six, they're awarded a medal. It would be worth asking if your local library does something similar (for us joining the library and joining in with the challenge costs nothing).
Our local library also invites in children's authors, story tellers and illustrators. This summer we went to see Shoo Rayner, who is both an author and an illustrator. He told the children a bit about coming up with ideas (finding gone off pizza in the back of a fridge if I remember rightly) and then told them one of his latest stories which was about a 'pizza monster', he then led all the children in drawing their own pizza monsters. My nephew loved it and was brimming with excitement to tell his parents and grandparents about it when he got home and show them his own 'illustration' - he'd never read any books by Mr Rayner at that point. There is a bit of a 'buy a book' at things like that, but it's not obligatory and the actual session was free.
Also by using the local library, each time my nephew chose a book for himself, he would choose one that he was going to read to his younger sister (she's only 2 but likes it when he sits to read a book to her with bright pictures and it does wonders for his confidence because he's 'good' enough to read to her without stumbling over the words as he might do in a book that he picked for himself). This summer for himself he got into The Magic Tree House books by Mary Pope Osborne - these are early chapter books where the characters time travel to a different period of history in each book. He loved the Horrid Henry books by Francesca Simon and has started on Andy Stanton's Mr Gum series for him to read a chapter or two with his mom at bedtime. Roald Dahl is another favorite.
