Reading aloud is not just for preschoolers You may think of reading aloud as something you do with a young child. But your teen can benefit from it, too. Consider reading aloud to each other from a story or article that might interest him. You might also check out an audiobook from your library. Hearing fluent reading can improve your teen's own reading fluency. And if he likes it, it may inspire him to read another book on that topic or by that author. click on the following link for further information: http://niswc.com/36acC276091 ______________________________________ La lectura en voz alta no es solo para los niños preescolares Quizás usted considere que leer en voz alta es una actividad para realizar solo con los niños pequeños. Pero su joven también puede beneficiarse de la lectura en voz alta. Considere turnarse con él para leer en voz alta una historia o artículo que podría interesarle. También podría sacar un audiolibro de la biblioteca. Escuchar una lectura fluida ayudará a mejorar la fluidez de su joven al leer. Y si le gusta, podría inspirarlo a leer otro libro de ese tema o autor. Haga clic en el siguiente enlace para más información: http://niswc.com/46acC276091
