Grade 1

Reading books aloud to children stimulates their imagination and expands their understanding of the world. It helps them develop language and listening skills and prepares them to understand the written word. Read stories on their own interest level, but beyond their reading level, you can stretch young readers' understanding and motivate them to improve their skills.

Grade 2

It's no secret that activities at home are an important supplement to the classroom, but there's more to it than that. There are things that parents can give children at home that the classrooms cannot give. There is no more important activity for preparing a child to succeed as a reader than reading aloud together. Fill your storytimes with a variety of books.

Grade 3

Reading is the key to lifelong learning, and if you can instill a love of reading at an early age, then a commitment to lifelong learning is sure to follow. Reading aloud presents books as sources of pleasant, valuable, and exciting experiences. Children who value books are motivated to read on their own, and will likely continue to practice independent reading throughout the rest of their lives.
