Parents need to read to their children


Parents, please read aloud to your young children. It only takes a few minutes a day. When you read to your children, they will enjoy literacy with you, and they will be better prepared for school.

Did you know that children's listening comprehension is generally higher than their reading ability?  If your child is reading at level A, you can read to him/her a higher level book. 

Also, I find it lots of fun to not only read TO children, but to also read WITH children. Take turns reading sentences. Take turns reading paragraphs. Before you know it, your child will read on his/her own!
