Read Aloud Month
Reading aloud is one of the most important activities to help prepare children for school and learning. Researchers recommend reading to your child from birth onward for at least 15 minutes per day. Not only does reading aloud improve a child’s literacy skills and language development, it nurtures a passion for reading and strengthen bonds.
According to Jim Trelease, author of The Read-Aloud Handbook, “students who read the most, read the best, achieve the most, and stay in school the longest.”
At Read and Feed, we want to give kids an appetite for reading and make it fun and exciting. Our tutors help the children improve their reading and writing skills while building confidence so that they are equipped with the tools for a successful future.
March is National Read Aloud Month, and we are celebrating by having children from several of our sites read a couple of pages of the book I can Read with My Eyes Shut! by Dr. Seuss. Each Friday, we’ve been posting one segment of the book on Facebook. Please take a moment to watch the complete video. The kids worked hard, and it's super cute.
