Let’s Talk!!!!  

Want to spend time with your youngster, build his/her readings skills, and help him/her learn to love books? You can do all of that when you read aloud. 

Here are suggestions:

Read Regularly —Try to read to your child every day for 10-15 minutes. This could be a calming bedtime routine or during a sibling’s sports practice.

Take Turns Choosing Books—your youngster may want to hear old favorites again and again. Use your turn for new titles and variety, such as nonfiction or poetry.

Let Her/Him Participate - ask your child to turn the pages while you read. Also, she can finish sentences that rhyme or fill in words she knows. Go slowly so she has time to understand the stories and look at the illustrations. The read-aloud time provides an active role.

Be Playful—you can use different voices for different characters or substitute your youngster’s name for the main character. Remember, you do not have to be an expert reader—your child will love it when you read aloud because it’s you.

 

A READING CHALLENGE. By reading more complex books, your child can learn new words, facts, and ideas. He’ll also be exposed to more complicated plots and will grow as a reader.

Knowing something about the topic or setting makes a tougher book easier to comprehend. If your youngster is reading a novel set in China, he could talk to someone who has been there or look up the country online.

Encourage your child to look at a simpler book on the same subject. A picture book biography about Harriet Tubman may help your youngster better understand a textbook chapter on the civil rights movement, for instance.

Suggest that your child read complicated material with pencil and paper in hand. He can jot down questions, words to look up, or facts he wants to learn more about. Make Reading "FUN-damental".
