Today, November 1, is the beginning of Family Literacy Month and the Happy 2nd Book Birthday to Darius Daniels: Game On! I hope you’ll celebrate with me over the course of the year as I share reading tips, free downloads, and opportunities for families, teachers, librarians and tutors to participate in virtual celebrations!
Tip #1- No matter your child’s age or reading level, rhymes are a super-power!
One super-power of rhymes is that they improve children’s ability to recall words and story concepts. So feed your hungry readers some rhyming books, such as Darius Daniels: Game On!, today. Ask them some questions to see how well they recall a chapter or story and repeat with them their favorite rhyming sections. Have fun, and share this blog with friends and family, and ask them to join you and the Hungry Readers campaign here!
