Run to read

December 2, 2016

Boys need to run in order to learn how to read. It’s simple, really, and explained well in this Time article. 

I see my 5 year old running around like he’s on fire. His energy level is consistently at max speed, even when he insists he’s tired. He maintains it until bedtime when he often falls asleep instantly. 

I get exhausted just watching him. 

But when he starts kindergarten next year, I want him to excel. Like any parent would. I don’t know yet how active he’ll be at his new school. It makes sense to me that running around and all types of physical activity gets the brain and blood flowing and let’s boys expel energy. So when the time does come to sit and learn, he might even be ready for a little quiet time. 

Note to self: Remember this post.
