30 Importance of Reading Reading promotes language, creativity and imagination. It can calm a fussy baby, strengthen relationships and help children (and parents) find solutions to problems. Reading provides memories, stimulates brain development and prepares children for school success. First children learn to read. Then they read to learn. First children learn to read. Then they read to learn..

31 Tips to a better story time Read a variety of books Let the child read to you Change your voice for each character Use varied voice levels Read at different tempos Put the child’s name into the story Use puppets Allow the child to pick the story Add sound effects Include a follow up or pre activity to the book

32 How to Read Pre-read the book. Can the child see the pictures? Point out the text from time to time. Invite participation. Read slowly, use expression! Use props. Ask and answer questions..

33 More Tips for Language Development Turn off the screens and the noise. Have pleasant conversations; describe what you see. Sing, rhyme and make up word games while you travel or wait for your turn. Record stories for playback at a later time. Use the library weekly; it’s a free resource. Use technology to have a relative or friend from far away read a book to your child. Be sure your children see men and women read for enjoyment and learning. Point this out to them if they don’t see it themselves. © Copyright 2012 North Dakota State University.

34 Even More Tips Play “I Spy” the letter B or “Who can find a word that starts with the letter “C”? Read children’s poetry together. Keep writing materials handy so children can write thank yous, lists, pictures with descriptions and notes about their day. Make a list of all the words your child can read. Add words daily. Give your 5-year-old simple two- and three- step directions to follow. Ask your child to retell events of the day or a story in the correct order it happened. © Copyright 2012 North Dakota State University.
