  7. 7. The Language/Reading Connection By Rebecca L. Roed, M.Ed., S.L.P.-C.C.C. Use your STRONGEST language! Many parents who do not speak English as their first language want to prepare their children for English-speaking schools. They may interact using older siblings or use their weaker language-English. This may seem like a good solution, but instead, it is very detrimental to the child’s language development, reading development and parent/child relationship. Your child will learn English when he gets to school AND he will learn it better if he has a solid language base in his home language. It is not WHICH language a child learns

  9. 9. Parent Questions:   <ul><li>1. How does reading to a baby help him later in school? </li></ul><ul><li>Children who been read to have had more chances to learn: sounds of language, discriminate between similar sounds/ words, understand social rules know correct sentences and word structure, learn concepts of print (right to left, top to bottom, page turning) and gain knowledge of a wide variety of things. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>Singing to babies teaches rhythm and rhyming.

I work a lot and don’t have time or energy to read to my child. What can I do? </li></ul><ul><li>*older siblings, friends, grandparents, babysitters can read to her. </li></ul><ul><li>*set aside just 1/2 hour/ day to read/talk to your child. </li></ul><ul><li>*on a day off, go to the Library.
