Early Literacy Tip: Read Aloud


Reading aloud promotes listening skills in young children. When they hear you talk, they pick up on the rules of grammar, sentence structure and the basics of conversation long before they are ready to start reading. You can read anything and everything, from the newspaper to the back of the cereal box.

 

Practice reading at home or attend one of our regular story times, which will be starting up again in January.
