Awesome Visual on The Importance of Reading Aloud to Kids

Awesome Visual on The Importance of Reading Aloud to Kids | library | Scoop.it

"Below is a graphic I come across while wading through my feeds today. The visual emphasizes the importance of read-alouds  in early literacy learning. It also features a set of interesting facts on how reading aloud helps in kids' literacy development. Reading aloud to kids is not only beneficial to young learners linguistic abilities but is also connected to their social and cognitive development. And the most important of them all is that only 15 minutes of read-aloud is enough to make a difference"

This  graphic has a place in every library and classroom, but also in every home (just so we don't lose sight of the huge importance of reading aloud).

Ozge Karaoglu's Blog - Reading Log for Kids

Ozge Karaoglu's Blog - Reading Log for Kids | library | Scoop.it

Reading Rewards is a tool to keep track of what and how much you are reading. You can find the books that you are reading from Amazon (like that you can create your online library) and add them in your reading log. Then, every day you write the minutes and the number of the pages that you have read. If you like, you can add your reviews and your rate with your comments on your log. You can create a wish list of the books that you would like to read too.
Also, as you read, you earn RR miles which you can spend by getting a Joke or Riddle of the day. Or, parents/teachers can add some rewards as well!
