The Reading Connection ~ March 2019

 

The Reading Connection – Mrs. Knapp & Mrs. Kunschaft

READING together at home!!!  

Reading together helps to build strong bonds and encourages your children to read for information or just for fun!  Hopefully we will be sliding into spring soon, but in the meantime, winter is a great time to cozy up with your family and enjoy some good books!

Family Book Club

Pick a book to read together as a family – it can be very motivating for your children to read and chat about a book as a family.  You may choose to have different family members take turns reading out loud – reading out loud will let your child enjoy books that are beyond their independent reading level and build their vocabulary by exposing them to new words.  If the book is an appropriate level for all in the group – everyone can read independently and then just stop and discuss at certain parts throughout the book.
(***This has been a particularly enjoyable experience with my family over the years – and the winter months have always been the best time to squeeze it in!)

Introduce new books – every year there are always many books that steal the hearts and minds of all children.  While it may seem like there’s only one author, series, or genre that your child wants to read, it’s important to remember that there are millions of books that will suit your child’s interests and capture their imagination.  Use the resources below to help your child find great books:
