1  The single most important thing you can do to encourage your child to enjoy reading is help them choose the “just-right” book.

2  It is interesting!  It is easy to read! ◦ Five finger rule

3  This is a wonderful activity no matter how old the child.  This can be enriched through “book conversations” that may occur before, during, and after reading.

4  Look at the cover and the pictures and make predictions about what the book is about.  While reading, make more predictions about what will happen next. Check and change predictions while you read.  Make connections from your life to the book you are reading. Encourage your child to do this.  After reading, talk about your favorite parts of the story and explain why you liked them.

5  Ask Elaborated Questions. ◦ Ask questions about the story & the pictures. ◦ When children answer, help them to elaborate on what they said. ◦ In other words, help them to tell you more.  The adult asks, “Ah, what’s that?”  Child: A big, red mouth.  She asks, “A big, red mouth with what?  Child says: “Teeth!”

6  Phonological Awareness refers to children’s ability to pay attention to:  Rhymes, syllables, & speech sounds  Model sounds that are difficult for your child to say  Ex: ‘I sssssee a sssssssnake’

7  This refers to the thoughts, feelings, & intentions of the story characters.  Adults can read the story & help children discuss the thoughts of the story characters. Ask, “What are the animals thinking/feeling?  Awareness and expression of own feelings  Appropriate ways to express feelings

8  Too often kids are more concerned with properly pronouncing words instead of understanding word meaning.  Ask 'Do you know what this means?' when your child reads an unfamiliar word.  Talk to your child about a variety of things using new words. Be sure to push your child by using higher level words.  Explain everyday activities using vocabulary specifically associated with those activities.  VIDEO

9  Play games that involve vocabulary, such as: ◦ Scrabble ◦ Boggle ◦ Charades ◦ Apples to Apples  This investment will pay off as your child develops their vocabulary and excels in school. Plus it's fun and the whole family can benefit

10  Your journey is beginning!  Your child is developing as a reader and writer every day.  Reading skills begin developing through talk and communication with you. Conversation is the first literacy lesson!  Read to your child EVERY day to provide a strong foundation.  Limit screen time and increase “lap time” and dinner conversation.

11  Phonemic Awareness  Phonics and Concepts about Print  Fluency  Vocabulary  Comprehension  Hand outs are available.

12  At 7:00 please accompany your youngest child to their next session.  Until then, enjoy looking at the books and handouts.  If you do not want your picture on the internet, please let Bev Harmon know!
