would that be like a parent reads every other page to s strory while the child reads the other pages. how about reading for so many minutes a nite>?
Only if the parent were stupid. How does that help writing skills? How does that help the child understand key words? how does that help the child develop key ideas?
I wonder if you have read the text material for this lesson.
That's good for children who have begun to read. Except I wouldn't set a time limit on reading. That makes it sound like a chore.
However, parents should start reading to children when they're about 6 months old, if not earlier. Enrich their vocabulary and language skills by talking with the child. Point out objects in their environment. Encourage their speech. The children with the best vocabulary are those whose parents use a wide variety of words.
Provide appropriate paper and an assortment of pencils and pens. Have them write letters to relatives.
And please, read the sites that Bob Pursley recommended. They are much more appropriate for middle school kids.
