      Here are some great ways to increase language skills in older children using books. Tell the story – ask the child to tell you the story again in their own words. This is a great way to develop sequencing skills. The child can use the pictures to help them to say what happened at different points in the story. Predict – With a new book, see. What is child development? Child development is a process every child goes through. This process involves learning and mastering skills like sitting, walking, talking, skipping, and tying shoes. Children learn these skills, called developmental milestones, during predictable time periods. Children develop skills in five main areas of development.

      The benefits of literature are legion. Books improves vocabulary, organizational skills, and the ability to read, comprehend, and analyze text. Plus, it can provide people with important historical perspective, encourage sympathy for other human beings, and promote appreciation for diversity and understanding of other cultures. teach language through literature using diverse strategies, stimulate interest in the extensive reading of literature, organise collaborative and interactive tasks that facilitate language learning through literature, and. develop critical thinking and creative writing skills in students through exposure to a variety of literary texts.

      Gardening with children provides the perfect combination of skills and tasks to address your child’s development. For example, gardening is a great physical development activity. Young children can practice locomotor skills, body management skills and object control skills while they move from one place to the other carrying tools, soil and. Let children have the opportunity to engage in activities that are fun and exciting while also useful, thoughtful, and structured so that they are learning the skills and objectives they need. Reconsider the book report: There are so many hands-on, engaging, and creative ways for students to become involved in a book and learn to love reading.

All parents need are just a few key words and phrases to keep in their back pocket to pull out during time spent reading with kids. Predicting is simply making a logical guess about a story or article before the text is read.

Model predicting by: Examining the cover of the book and talking about the book. In addition to fostering language development, storybook reading has been correlated to a variety of reading fac- tors, including children’s eagerness to read, children be- coming literate before formal schooling, and children’s success in beginning reading in school (see Sulzby & T eale, ).

For years, adults have used children's literature as an adjunct tool to help guide a child's thinking, instill moral values, strengthen personal character, and shape behavior. More recently, however, children's books have taken on an additional role: empowering young minds with critical thinking skills to foster social-emotional learning (SEL) in a safe social setting.

Children’s literature is valuable in providing an opportunity to respond to literature, as well as cultural knowledge, emotional intelligence and creativity, social and personality development, and literature history to students across generations.

As a child’s language skills develop, books then become a fantastic tool for expanding their vocabulary. Books are wonderful for providing children with opportunities to discover new, interesting words. It’s brilliant hearing children practising new words in context.

Literacy is the basis for your child’s ability to read, write, communicate and socialise. You can develop your child’s early literacy by communicating with your child, reading, and playing with rhyme.

Early literacy development is about everyday, fun activities like singing, talking and playing games. Your child will learn words and develop language skills from the songs, stories and conversations you share together.

Reading to your child in other languages You can read, sing and tell stories with your child in whatever language you feel most comfortable speaking.

Once kids hit their teens, they don’t stop developing thinking skills. In fact, executive functioning skills—the skills that help all of us plan, organize, and complete tasks—don’t fully mature until age 18 or As kids get older, the wiring system of the brain just becomes more intricate: Circuits intertwine with other circuits to.

And books can also support learning in specific content areas. In “Promoting Resilience Through Read-Alouds,” Jan Lacina, Michelle Bauml, and Elizabeth R.

Taylor describe how teachers can use children’s literature to help children build resilience when they face tough times: “As teachers support students to read and reflect on. Storybooks provide a rich opportunity to build not only literacy skills, but also math understanding.

Books with math concepts woven into the pictures and storylines can promote children's mathematical thinking and introduce foundational math concepts such as numbers, shapes, patterns, and measurement. child development and early learning: a foundation for professional knowledge and competencies 3 Together with the research in developmental biology and neuroscience, research in developmental, cog- nitive, and educational psychology has contributed to a greater understanding of the developing child.

Children’s literature is fundamental to learning about language, learning about the world and learning about self (Hill, ). Children who are captivated into the magic world of literature are going to have a rich language and vocabulary repertoire, imagination, creative thinking skills (related to high order thinking skills) and broadened.

Through books, our children and students can learn more about themselves. They can also learn about people, places, and experiences that they have never before experienced. They can learn empathy and social skills to use in their own lives! We can think about a children’s book as serving as either a window or a mirror.

These books help kids to understand and navigate the difficult world of emotions and social communication skills. As a speech-language pathologist, I occasionally work with kids that lack social communication skills.

I love to use books as examples to teach certain skills .
