Preschool / Kindergarten
With the dog days of summer settling in, and school starting up soon for some districts across the country, it is time to get our students back into learning gear.
Many times I worked so hard with kindergarteners to get them to read and they could care less about letters and words. Now, they loved story time and reading a story is much more than just reading words. These students wanted to read the pictures, ask questions, tell me about something they noticed, etc. All of these observations are important pre-reading skills. However, the act of finding meaning in words was of no interest to them. And that is OK.
