Parents: here's how you can make story time a learning experience for your little one.

  • Point to each word on the page as you read.
  • Read the title and ask your child to make a prediction.
  • Take "picture walks."
  • Model fluency while reading, and bring your own energy and excitement for reading to your child.
  • Ask your child questions after reading every book.
  • Connect reading and writing if possible.
