What a crazy week of parent-teacher conferences – thank you so much to that families that graciously cancelled and rescheduled their conference times due to my strep throat. I am feeling so much better and excited to get back to school!!
During conferences, I had a lot of conversations with parents about getting their child interested in some fascinating characters from beginning chapter books.
Reading aloud chapter books to your child at home is a great way to end your day together and also helps to develop important comprehension skills. Chapter books usually have just a few illustrations so your child is nudged to visualize the story events in his/her mind. These books can also enrich vocabulary and present interesting characters that might change in surprising ways.
