Teachable Moments

Read Early and Often

June 19, 2018

Your child begins learning at birth! Read to your child early and often. The more words your child hears, the more their brain will grow and develop!

Visit your local library or lending library at your school and read a variety of different books. When you read, bring the story to life! Use different voices for different characters or add your own sound effects.  When you read, help your child see how you read the pages from left to right and show them the words with your finger.

You can also ask questions as you read or point out connections. For example, if the character is drinking milk you can point out: “You had a big glass of milk today with breakfast too. Milk helps us build strong bones.”

By reading and having fun together, your child will begin to see reading as an enjoyable activity to become a lifelong reader
