Reading to Kids
|May 29th, 2018|
- Reading in an entertaining way, trying to make it as fun as possible for them. Voices etc.
- Leaving pauses for them to fill in words or phrases they've memorized or can guess.
- Stopping frequently to ask them questions about what's happening, asking about details of pictures, asking about counterfactuals.
- When reading a new book, ask them to guess what's happening next.
- Once they start learning to read, or at least learning letters, see if they can read little bits. Can you find any 'o's? Is this word 'foo' or 'bar'?
I don't know how much their comprehension drops when I do this; I definitely make more mistakes and I suspect they miss some things. I could read novel stories and ask reading comprehension questions, but I suspect they'd be uncooperative.
 Timing it, it seems like about 1.7x what I'd normally do: example recording.
