I love sharing a good book with children. Reading aloud to children is one of the things to do when you’re growing readers. Read more tips on growing readers! Whether I’m reading to:
• PopUP PLAY Date kiddos or
• Any other kidlet
interested in stories I love watching, as I read aloud, their rapt attention.
Some Benefits of Reading Aloud
• Reading aloud helps them understand the structure of a story. That it has a beginning, a middle and an end.
• Reading aloud helps with comprehension. I love interacting with kiddos while reading aloud. When they’re wrapped up in the story and they just have to ask questions or make comments I know there’s a lot of thinking going on!
• It creates a positive association between books and reading. They see my enthusiasm and interest and are more likely to develop a love of reading for themselves.
Now I love reading to my grandchildren. Of course I can’t always be with them so I’m grateful technology allows me to send videos of me reading to them!
