Read with Me! Stress-Free Strategies for Building Language and Early Literacy
The Read with Me program consists of six strategies that facilitate language and early literacy skills through active participation in the reading interaction. These interactive reading strategies are:
- Echo Reading
- Paired Reading
- Friendly Questions
- Wordless Books
- Reader’s Theatre
The strategies can be used with children aged 18 months through 8 years (and beyond) and implemented by parents in the home, educators at school, or in individual or small group intervention.
Everything necessary to implement these strategies directly or to teach them to others comes with this manual including:
- Overview of Background information
- Lesson Plans and Training Tools
- Handouts for Parents and workshop participants
- Extensive booklists for each strategy
- Pre and Post Measurement Surveys
- Access to a free introductory information Power Point Presentation (and the accompanying narrative)
- And More!
Read with Me targets the fundamental skills of talking and listening as a basis for the development of literacy. Additional core competencies related to the development of language, such as phonological and phonemic awareness, vocabulary development, reading fluency, and critical thinking skills are supported within the joint reading interaction.
Most importantly, Read with Me helps children and adults find the joy in reading together-the most fundamental of all the foundational reading skills.
