Before diving into the spring books for preschoolers, let’s look at where reading comprehension is headed.
By Kindergarten, children are asked to retell familiar stories with prompting and support, including key details.
With prompting and support, children will also be asked to compare and contrast the adventures and experiences of characters in familiar stories.
YOU can do this now with your preschooler to prepare for Kindergarten and practice balance to help with reading skills. How? Read here about how the two relate.
How to read with preschoolers
- Read a lot.
- Relate the story to your preschooler’s world.
- Does the book compare with their life?
- How does the book relate to others?
- Does the book relate to the world around them?
Read. Talk. Relate. Repeat. – At any age or stage, reading is the way to go.
