I’ve had many people ask me how to teach children to read. Whether it’s a parent who doubts knowing enough to help her child through the process, or a teacher who worries that he’s pushing past the bounds of developmentally appropriate practice, there are many who wonder exactly how to get the job done well.
So for today’s Q&A, I’ve invited my friend, Allison McDonald of No Time for Flashcards, who along with our mutual friend (and her partner in crime), Amy Mascott of Teach Mama, has written a new book called, Raising a Rock-Star Reader: 75 Quick Tips for Helping Your Child Develop a Lifelong Love for Reading (affiliate link) to join me for this Q&A.
I loved Allison and Amy’s book, and felt like it hit this topic right on the head — how do you build meaningful literacy skills in young children, in developmentally appropriate ways? This book is a valuable resource for both parents and teachers of young children, and Allison’s understanding of how to build literacy skills with respect for the developmental process is exceptional. I hope you enjoy the insight she has to offer!
