Bunyi Haiwan, Suara Lucu & 5 Tip Membaca Dengan Kuat
Reading is as much the cornerstone of education as it is a doorway to adventure and fantasy, as much an essential component in learning, enrichment and development as it is a crucial aspect of expanding a child’s possibilities.
One of the most valuable activities when it comes to cultivating good reading habits is reading aloud; it helps expose a child to richer language, correct pronunciation and proper grammar; encourages a child to use the imagination and come up with exciting new ideas; stretches attention spend and improves focus; and most importantly, can be fun for both you and your child!
Anyone can do it, so get started with these easy-to-use strategies!
Make things fun
by reading in character, making animal sounds and funny voices, and acting out parts of a book; this will help engage your little one and make it memorable, too!
by getting your little one to make predictions (“What do you think the lion did next?”) or describe a picture or place (“What sort of food do you think was in the wizard’s cupboard?); it will help build their confidence in expressing their thoughts!
helps build your child comprehension abilities. Choose questions that don’t have a direct ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ answer, but are open-ended enough to make your little one use their imagination. Follow up answers with other questions, and expand on what they say.
Look for books with rhymes;
children love books that have repeated phrases, repetition and rhythm. This isn’t just entertaining, but let’s them remember words easier – a crucial building block to advanced reading.
Read WITH, not TO, your child;
doing it together makes it more fun and involving, and keeps their attentions focused for a longer time. Plus, it’s a perfect time for bonding, and you can quickly have a favourite book to turn to, whether as a reward, as a way to get them to bed or to accompany them when they’re not feeling well.
Finally, always remember that reading and learning aren’t a destination, but a process, so be patient, encouraging and most of all, make sure both of you have fun! Happy reading!
