Read Aloud Homework in Kindergarten

Read alouds are powerful and help children develop many skills for school and life. When a child is read to, they develop oral language, a concept of books, and learn that pictures and words work together to tell a story. Reading aloud also helps when it comes to learning how to read.  Reading aloud to your child is one of the most important thing you can do to lay a foundation for reading success. 

In Kindergarten, every student takes home a read aloud book pack four nights a week. Parents are asked to read the book aloud to their child and discuss their favorite part at the end. This homework gives parents and children time to bond over books, share their likes and dislikes about the books, and open communication about other topics of interest.
