The first grade teachers want to remind you that reading aloud to your children continues to be valuable even when they have learned to read. When you read a book higher than your children’s reading level, it can increase their vocabulary, attention span, and motivation to keep practicing their own reading. Discussing the selection following the reading can also help develop your children’s reading comprehension. Please make time for reading aloud in your family today
