Wisdom from the Queen Bee Mrs. Starlin
Hose Elementary enjoyed the warmer weather and the sunshine this week.
Next week we will be enjoying Dr Seuss's Book and fun activities and riddles. You might want to enjoy Cat in the Hat or Green Eggs and Ham at home. Here is another tip for reading at home from Edmentum:
- A lot of people don't realize just how many skills can be picked up through the simple act of reading to a child. Not only are you showing them how to sound out words, you're also building key comprehension skills, growing their vocabulary, and letting them hear what a fluent reader sounds like. Most of all, regular reading helps your child to develop a love reading, which is the best way to set them up for reading success.
- Strengthen your child's comprehension skills by asking questions while reading. For younger children, encourage them to engage with the pictures (e.g. “Do you see the boat? What color is the cat?”).
