Transcript of Reading With Your Child

Reading With Your Child
Research: Why do we believe that reading with your children is so beneficial?
The Partnership for Reading, which is a collaborative effort by three federal agencies:

the National Institute for Literacy (NIFL)
the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD)
the U.S. Department of Education

Its purpose is to bring the findings of evidence-based reading research to the educational community, families, and others with an interest in helping all people learn to read well.

And several other organizations based out of Universities.
Agencies set up to research literacy. Focus - To find out what leads to successful learning.
US Research Agencies
Canadian Research Agencies
The Canadian Language and Literacy Research Network (CLLRN) is a community of researchers and partners seeking to improve the language and literacy skills of Canadian children.
The Canadian Centre for Research on Literacy (CCRL) which promotes the consolidation of research interests and expertise to create a new substantive research focus in the area of literacy development.
And several other organizations based out of Universities.
Research - Why read with children?
Guidelines - What you should be doing?
Techniques - How to read effectively?
What areas will we cover in today's PTO meeting?
1. Spend time with the children talking, telling stories and singing
songs. These are fun and important activities that help children get ready
for reading.
2. Read to and with the children every day. This shows that daily reading
and spending time together is important.
3. Let the children help choose the books you read together. This will help keep the children’s interest.
4. Find a comfortable place to read and sit together. This helps them create
a special feeling at reading time.
5. Change your voice and the pace that you read to fit the story. This makes
the story more interesting for the children.
6. After reading a book, talk about the story. Discussing the pictures and the main ideas in a book helps develop understanding.
7. Let the children see you reading books, newspapers, and magazines. This sets an example for the children that you enjoy and value reading.
8. Take the children to the library or book store regularly. They are a wonderful place to find books and so much more.
What should you be doing to help your child reach his or her learning potential?
and Techniques
Reading with your children
opens up the door to academic freedom...
because without literacy school has limitations.
Thank you ASB parents, for your kind attention!
