Each week, I am making time to read a book aloud to a different kindergarten class. This week, it was a pleasure reading to the children in Mrs. Becker's and Mrs. Agostino's class! I love visiting the classes and interacting with the students.
Reading aloud is important. The language in books is very rich, and in books there are complete sentences. In books, newspapers, and magazines, the language is more complicated and more sophisticated. A child who hears more sophisticated words has a giant advantage over a child who hasn’t heard those words. Research also shows that reading aloud also increases a child’s attention span. I look forward to reading to more classes through-out year.
