Spotlight on Reading: The Olivia Method
Meet 1st grader Olivia Miller, creator of The Olivia Method for reading challenging books. The Oliva Method simultaneously uses audio books from eRead Kids and hardcover books from the Media Center to maximize the benefits of each.
During a recent interview, Olivia explained how she developed her process while attempting to read Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days, which was slightly above her reading range. Said Olivia, “I love this book a lot, but I wasn’t going to read it because sometimes I get mixed up. So I put on the voice one [from eRead Kids] and was trying to go to the next page but realized there were no pictures. So I got out my book and followed along.” Oliva has since used this approach with several other books, at both home and Hope-Hill, and shows no signs of slowing down.
Thanks to Olivia for sharing her method with her schoolmates and remember us when you are famous!
