So are you wondering why I have you reading the same book over and over this month (and every other month)? I mean, I gave you a library list of book recommendations and yet I keep writing about one book. So here’s the deal, reading the same book over and over allows your Lil’ to build their vocabulary and comprehend the book better each time they read it. I use this comparison a lot, but it is just like watching a movie for the second or third time (or in my case Harry Potter for the 500th time). Each time you watch it, you notice new details or you think about a scene in a new way. The same process is happening for our Lil’s with books when we read it over and over, thus I encourage you to read the same book multiple times.
This week we will be reading the book Ten Rules for Being a Superhero for the 4th time and we will start incorporating some recall skills were we see if (and help) our Lil’ comprehend and remember parts of the book.
Lil’ Explorers Focus Skills
- Interact with and recall details from a text that was read aloud
Lil’ Creators Focus Skills
- Recall details from a text that was read aloud
- Why is he cleaning? – His momma said it was too messy.
- He (Captain Magma) is strong, has lava eyes, and is nice.
- He is eating a cupcake!
- He is climbing the ladder!
