Reading Round the Clock - Reading for a Purpose

This video introduces caregivers to the many ways they can help children with reading skills, whether reading for fun or to find information. Word lists from the teacher are great tools for building vocabulary. Children can sort the words by prefixes, suffixes, or syllables. Word games such as Sneaky Snake offer ways to engage children in reading, as does having them pretend to be a favorite book character, or creating their own artwork based on a book.

Reading Round the Clock - Reading on the Go

This video introduces caregivers to the many ways they can help children with reading skills while on the go, such as spotting all the places where you see letters and words in a city block, at a store, or on the road. Signs are everywhere. Children can find and point out words on a sign or talk about the meaning of signs. Using menus in restaurants, children can match pictures to words or make up a story about a food. Singing with children helps them hear each syllable because each has a different note.

This video introduces caregivers to the many ways that they can help children with reading skills while using handheld devices, watching television, or in front of a computer. Talking with children about what they see on the screen helps them better understand what they see. Turning on closed captioning encourages reading during screen time.
