Reading

Reading is the single most important way to help your child get ready to read. Reading together helps your child connect words with language and understand that each book tells a story. The following websites are great resources for the literacy practice of reading or do one of the suggested activities from the list below:

  • • Take a favorite book on a walk. Stop in a nice spot and read a page or two.
  • • Go “undercover” and read after dark by flashlight.
  • • Retell a story in a new way. Sing it, draw it, use simple puppets, etc.
  • • Keep a word journal. Write down and talk about new words you read.
