Create Life-Long Learners Through Reading!
To support your children’s ever-expanding web of knowledge and help them connect new knowledge to previous knowledge, invite them to share each morning what they already know about a topic and what they would like to learn. Then read together!
Experience Curriculum’s monthly recommended booklists can help children build on their previous knowledge and encourage their continued curiosity through special theme-related stories.
Daily reading and comprehension activities enable children to make meaning and acquire information from a written text. Strong reading comprehension skills are indicators of long-term academic success.
“It is not enough to simply teach children to read; teachers should give them something worth reading. Something that will stretch their imaginations–something that will help them make sense of their own lives and encourage them to reach out toward people whose lives are quite different from their own.” ~Katherine Paterson, author of Bridge to Terabithia
