Reading to Your Children

Reading to Your Children

June 13, 2020

Greetings Parents, Today, let’s talk about reading. Over the next few blogs, I want to introduce (or reintroduce) the concept of reading to your child/children. Reading to your child is very important; especially for very young children. Reading to your child for 20 minutes a day would help them immensely. 

Your child must hear the word first before they can read it. So children that have been read to day after day – the Cat in Hat- will have an advantage from hearing the words cat and hat. When the child sees the word in print he/she will recognize it quicker and thus be a more comprehensive reader. To start the process keep it short, simple and consistent. Now watch your child’s enthusiasm over the coming days, weeks, and months. 

Let us know how you and your family are doing with the reading by emailing us at
