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 for a Purpose is one of three videos in the “Reading ‘Round the Clock” series created by the State Library of Ohio, the Ohio Educational Library Media Association (OELMA), INFOhio, and the Ohio PTA.
