Read with Me Handout (PDF)
When you read WITH children, rather than to them, you invite children to participate in the experience of reading and create opportunities for language and cognitive growth. asking questions, making connections, and exploring the pictures are a few ways to invite children to read with you. Modeling this to caregivers at storytime can open up a new world of literacy and language opportunities. We will explore strategies to make your storytelling more interactive, practice creating early literacy tips for caregivers, and discuss how to make this part of every storytime.
