Early Literacy Tip—June 2017

Read Aloud to the Whole Family

Summer is a great time to unplug and connect with the whole family.  Choose a great book, maybe a classic or maybe your favorite from childhood, to read aloud chapter by chapter throughout the summer and children will:

*continue to associate reading with warm, pleasant feelings

*build new vocabulary since the language of books differs from conversation

*gain exposure to writing styles and authors that they can further explore

*explore social and moral issues alongside their families
