• Story Telling Sunday

    Reading with your child can instill a love for books and reading. You can listen to a story together, read to your child, or have your child read to you. Talk about the story, the pictures, and the characters. Reading encourages conversation in the form of questions and answers.
     
    *** Don’t get frustrated if your child picks the same book over and over again. This increases language learning as they become familiar with characters, vocabulary, grammar, and sequencing.
