There are many approaches to this: One, link the necessity for reading parallel to the interest. For example, have them group together to read something that will result in a reward if they have read it correctly and understood. In order to do that, your mastery of the language has to come into play in the form of trickery or misdirection. Using a few homonyms :using "bear" or "morning". Having them go over each word slowly, combined with their peers' guidance will force them to pay attention. Entymology of words can be fun as well because you can introduce them to different languages at the same time.
I assist teaching Kindergarteners to read and the ways I try to make it more interesting is by focusing on pictures before reading pages and often asking them questions such as "do you have a dog?" At the end of reading time I often ask them to choose the page they liked best and they get to read that page again. When done reading I always draw an imaginary star on their back to remind them that they have been a good reader.
With every good wish!
