When children learn how emotionally full and experientially rich reading experiences can be, they are positioned to develop into lifelong readers.
To lead children into reading proficiency, we must first activate the emotional needs that the artful language and the compelling illustrations touch in them.
Go with a child’s flow of wanting new books to read. They’ll offer clues as to what opens their floodgates of excitement and interest. Watch, listen and meet them where they’re at.
There’s a basic, simple solution that nearly doubles the number of children doing well in learning to read.
Kids learn to ask questions from the kinds of questions we ask of them.
Set the stage for lifelong learning by teaching kids to breathe in wonderful information through reading and to breathe out their experiences and thoughts through writing.
If you want children to love reading, show them how much fun it is.
Living is learning. If we aren’t learning, we are just existing.
