We have 100% enthusiasm and desire to read in young children when they start school…
What happened to the 100% we had in K?
“The single most important activity for building the knowledge required for essential success in reading is reading aloud to children.”
Becoming a Nation of Readers, 1985
Reading aloud provides a means to an end -- the pleasure and love for reading!
REMEMBER… the art of listening is an acquired skill – it must be developed and it will take time! (Jim Trelease)
“Being able to handle books independently allows children to “read” the books themselves, using words they remember from being read to. These activities improve verbal abilities. Children who are not allowed to handle books will be far less likely to seek out books for entertainment or information.”
