While language growth is important, we also are interested in reading to students because it’s a fun activity for children. As a result, it increases their motivation to learn to read! You can probably remember stories that were read to you as a child – some of our personal favorites include The Wump World, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, and The Snowy Day.
What books do you remember being read to you? All of these books introduced you to new words and ideas, and were your first steps in learning to read for yourself.
