Television Interference?

Is television an uninvited, but distracting guest at children's
learning/playing time?
A study by the Center on Media and Child Health showed that background television affected children's playtime.
The children were generally not looking at the television screen while playing with toys, but even so, background TV (in this case, Jeopardy)
shortened children's attention to their play. The children in the study were between the ages of one and three.

Quoted from the Colorado Council International Reading Association

"A word of encouragement
during failure is worth more than
an hour of praise after success."

Supporting Your Children By

Reading at Home

Beginning Reader Activities
 -Encourage children to bring home books  from the school library and take books from home to read at school.  (Cross-Country Cat by Mary Calhoun, Erick Ingraham)

 -Set aside a regular time and place for books so that reading
them becomes as natural as eating and sleeping. (If You Decide to Go to the Moon by Faith McNulty, Steven Kellogg)

 -Read alternate pages, ask each other questions, and
discuss the story. Children can predict outcomes, discuss how the characters feel, and relate the events to their own experiences. (David Goes to School by David Shannon)

Independent Reader Activities
 -Encourage children to develop an interest in a variety of genres such as biography, poetry, and historical fiction.  Personal interests and hobbies offer ideas for the child's personal library. (Comeback Kid by John Elway)

 -Compare and contrast video adaptations of children's
books. Be sure to take along books on tape for the car during long trips. (The Indian in the Cupboard by Lynne Reid Banks)

 -Challenge readers to compare and contrast books. This
is especially interesting with series of books which have the same characters. (Bunnicula and Bunnicula Strikes Again by James Howe)
