Play Talk Sing Read


This Week's Tip is:  READ

Interactive Shared Reading

Make shared reading interactive. Before you begin a book, look at the cover and predict what the book is about. Have your child turn the book's pages. Ask questions as you read and listen to what your child says. When you finish the book, ask your child to retell the story. This helps children recognize patterns and know what to expect from written and spoken language.

Try reading "I'm the Biggest Thing in the Ocean" by Kevin Sherry and talk about the cover, and what might happen in the story.

Talk to your children about what they draw, and write captions or stories together. This helps make a connection between spoken and printed language.
