This past week on The Children’s Bookshelf, I noticed several wonderful posts about children’s literacy that I wanted to share with you. Each of these posts about literacy is simple and full of practical suggestions on how you can encourage the proper development of reading skills in even small children.
+Julie Kirkwood at +Creekside Learning has some great ideas for giving your kids a “reading-centered life”. I love her point on how you shouldn’t skip bedtime reading any more than you would skip tooth brushing or having your kids use the bathroom before bed.
Do you want children who love reading and have good reading comprehension? Nichole at Book Worm Mama gives 7 ways to help your kids be word readers rather than “word callers”.
Did you know that music and literacy perfectly complement each other? +Jodie Rodriguez from +Growing Book by Book not only explains how music helps children learn to read but also lists a number of excellent materials.
