For very young learners you may ask the parents to ask their child to read their books to them at bed time. This has been done with amazing levels of success in many places as it helps child-parent bonding as well as giving the child a reason to use English out of class and builds the school-home relationship. Some teachers give small sheet of paper with the book to give to the parents – the parents fill it in and the child returns it with the book. The questions should take no more than a minute to complete or parents won’t do it either! It may look like this.
