I recently read a book on read alouds. It is the best thing to do to help your child succeed in reading. I made a vow that I will read a minimum of 3 books a day to my students. If I read more, then that is fantastic. Remember that it can even be the same book three times and the children will benefit.
The children will benefit because they will listen to what a fluent reader should sound like, they will get new vocabulary, and they will pick up listening skills. Listening skills is an essential phonological awareness skill needed to be great readers.
Don't hesitate to write to me if you need ideas on any preschool subject. I have been teaching 16 years and am a bilingual teacher.
