Tips on Reading Aloud

Reading aloud has a host of educational benefits, but is works best if it isn't approached as an educational exercise. Parents have been known to have children repeat each word after them, as a device to teach reading. Such a tedious approach is more likely to dampen enthusiasm for books than to promote learning. Just enjoy the books together. The increased vocabulary, understanding of story structure, exposure to correct grammar, and other benefits will follow naturally.
