Dads Reading Aloud to Build Kidís Reading Skill

Itís easy for preschool and elementary school teachers to tell which children have been read to at home on a regular basis, because the dads and moms reading aloud have prepared these children to learn to read. As dads read aloud to them at home, children:

 

  • see the link between print and language. They begin to understand that those black marks on the page represent sounds and words.

  • discover how to hold a book so that it is right side up and how to turn the pages.

  • understand top and bottom, beginning and end, first and last. 

  • find out how to take a book from a bookshelf and how to put it back.

  • learn how to open books and in which direction we read books. For instance, in English, books are read from left to right.

  • learn the terms Ďletterí and wordí.

  • build their memories, as they need to recall what happened earlier in the book to understand the part of the book that we are now reading aloud.

  • increase their attention spans.

  • see that their family values literacy.


Dad reminder: You can start to read to your kids at ANY age. It's fun for the kids and dad. It really is a dad duty!
