Story time is bonding time with many more benefits.
Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) January 17, 2013
A routine story time has many benefits for children. The routine ensures a daily bonding time between parent and child. Kids Activities Blog has researched and released additional benefits according to the childrens developmental stages.
For newborns, cuddling time will help to calm them down. It will get them familiar to the parent's soothing voice and will introduce them to books as part of their daily activities.
Non-verbal toddlers will get the benefit to become familiar with the cadence of language. Going over objects in the book will help them to expand their vocabulary.
Preschoolers will be inspired daily to decode familiar stories. Reading will spark their imagination and can help them to build confidence when they are able to recite the stories by memory.
Fun and easy reading activity ideas include setting up a reading corner beginning in the baby years. This will even provide the youngest non-readers easy access to the books. Follow the instructions on Kids Activities Blog to safely set up a baby reading corner.
Making books, using blocks to tell stories, going to the library weekly, or using chalkboards to create stories, are only a few ideas to help the emerging readers conquer one of the major milestones in Early Childhood Development: reading.
For the complete list and instructions for the reading activities check out Kids Activities Blog to get even the youngest members of the household inspired to love books.
