Enriching your Reading Times
The following articles (about a bit lengthy) offer LOADS of tips to help you not just read TO your child, but share meaningful literature experiences with him or her. The articles offer advice and explanations for how to dig deeper into text, how to help your child infer, predict, and synthesize rather than just recall words. I post these with one caveat however: please remember that your child works HARD every day in school. And while reading at home is a vital part of continuing education, remember that above all else, your child needs to ENJOY reading. Use these articles to subtly influence your reading time with your child - not to extend the school day into the evening. We need kids to LOVE reading!
