Literacy Tips for Storytime

It’s no secret that daily reading with kids can have pretty significant improvement in overall literacy, concentration, imagination, and empathy (just to list a few benefits). Daily reading helps, but these gentle nudges will help guide your reading time!

preview the book

SPOILER ALERT: Before you jump into the story, check out the ending! Tap through a few pages on your tablet or thumb through the first pages in your book. Quickly looking through the story will prime your little one and let them know what to expect. It’s kinda like watching the trailer before committing to something on Netflix…always a good idea!

Sale Here Pumpkin There

Here’s your chance to be sneaky. During the book preview, or maybe just before you read a specific page, point out 1-2 words to your kid. Pick a hard one! This takes the mystery out of certain words and encourages your child to be a confident reader.

you read i read

Share the mic! Kids want to read, but sometimes they can get burned out before the end of the story. When you and your little one take turns reading, you’re helping build stamina and showing them that they can finish the story (even if it takes a little help).

retell the story

After the story (whether that’s right after reading time or at your next reading session), have your kiddo retell it from memory. If they need extra help, have them hold the book (or flip back through the tablet ) to spark their memory. This is vital for comprehension and will help them learn to find the key points of the story.

connect the story

Kids learn empathy from learning about other stories that they may not have personally experienced. Connect your story to something your little reader has experienced. Read a story about school? Ask them about their class. Read a story with emotional connections? Ask them about a time in their life when they felt the same way!

The key for improvement is taking a few minutes everyday to read with your little one. It may be slow, but everyday your student will learn something, big or little, that will help them become successful readers.

Happy Reading,

-Raffi, Team StoryBots
