To read, we need to be able to do six things: enjoy reading, name objects, know alphabet letters, aware of print, hear sounds and tell stories. This month we will focus on the enjoying reading skill.
What can be more fun than doing something a loved adult is doing too? When you read, your child not only sees how it is done, but also learns it is something enjoyable. Reading while snuggling on a lap helps reinforce this skill, too!
