Reading with your kiddos at home…

Aug 7th 2011

Parents, does this sound familiar:  “I’m too tired to read,” “You read it to me mommy,”  “I already read at school today.”  Sometimes having kids practice their reading at home can turn into a chore or a fight, even when children are capable readers.  I was experiencing this at home with my own son, and my students at school.  This inspired me to collaborate with my partners and develop the “Hoo Can Read?” flashcards.  This learning game makes reading time fun and eliminates all the anxieties and frustrations children have with reading.  By providing choices, support, and taking turns reading, children begin to experience success, increase their confidence, and become motivated to read.  It is truly amazing to me that now my son and my students who used to avoid reading, now BEG me to get the “owl” cards and read with them!
