Reading to Children From the Beginning: A Parent Handout
Sharing the joy of reading on a daily basis helps children develop a love for books, reading and learning. Children discover that reading is an enjoyable learning experience and become readers for life!
Reading out loud to children introduces new words, ideas and information. Talking with children before, during and after reading helps develop listening and speaking skills and develops new understandings. This four page handout has been formatted so it can be run off back to back on letter sized paper. Buyers can review page one by clicking on sample image of this item. Page four has a total of thirteen practical tips for reading to children. Educators who purchase this handout are welcome to forward it electronically, post it on their school website, and photocopy it for distribution to their parent population. It makes an excellent insert to send home with report cards, an addition to regular class or school newsletters and can be used as a springboard for discussion at parent meetings.
