Your young child gets ready to read every minute of the day by interacting with you: his first and best teacher. Find out how to make this fun and easy for you and your child.
In this easy-to-use, pick up anytime resource, you'll learn to
take advantage of the learn through play style in which your preschooler/kindergarten child learns best
match your child's abilities and readiness with easy to use charts and quizzes
have the time of your life reading with your child rather than it being a chore
You'll find three big ideas:
the importance of oral language (conversations and chats)
how to read aloud with your child so that they grow skills and their relationship with you
play with the sounds of the language through engaging games and activities you can do anytime.
You are your child’s first and best reading teacher. What you do during these toddler and preschool days makes all the difference in whether your child learns to read easily or has a difficult time, starts further back than his readiness level or comes to more formal education at just the right place.
You have an important role to play. But you may wonder,
“How should I get started?”
“Will what I do help, not hinder my child’s early literacy?”
“What if my child isn’t reading when he enters kindergarten?”
“Doesn’t my child just need to play?”
The first thing you need to do is RELAX! What this book will do is help you talk, listen, and read with your child in a way that actively promotes early literacy without stress—and without pushing your child. It won’t take much effort and the results will amaze you. If you are excited about something, your child is likely to be excited too. Formal reading “instruction” will come later.
You know your child best, and you realize that these pre-kindergarten years are extraordinary. You begin to prepare a child to read by regularly engaging in three core activities you already do with your toddler or preschool child. These are the simple, big early literacy ideas in this book: you engage in great conversations, you engage him in read-alouds, and you build his ability to listen and hear sounds.
