Learning to read is part of the first learning that children do at school and, although it is not easy at first, there are two ways to help them achieve it successfully: encourage the practice of reading and encourage them to read aloud.
Children begin to read syllables, mistakes, mispronounces, jumping lines ... but how can they gradually improve and be more agile? Reading out loud is an excellent ally in this learning. Beneficios 7 benefits of reading aloud
I have spoken with several teachers and they all recommend reading aloud to children who are just beginning to read.
They may sometimes feel frustrated because they do not do it well , they may get tired and that reading a sheet is more than enough and it may take longer than we expect to read, but they will do it with a little effort and a push on our part.To give them that push we can choose readings that stimulate and entertain them, be they comics, books, stories or even brochures, it is about them choosing what they are most interested in. Another very important point is to sit down with them and let them read to us, the benefits of this are enormous:
1 - When the child reads aloud he is aware of his mistakes and tries to correct them. 2 - We can listen to what the child says and help him when he is stuck with one word or has pronounced another wrongly.3 - It makes them more agile readers and they leave behind the slow and syllabic reading
4 - It helps children to express themselves and to communicate better.
5 - Enrich children's vocabulary and help them develop their language.
6 - Stimulates children's attention and concentration capacity.
7 - Generates interest in reading and promotes taste and pleasure in reading.
