Power UP Storybook Reading: Engage in Purposeful and Interactive Read Alouds Interactive reading builds oral language and literacy. Reading aloud to and with children is a powerful and engaging experience that serves a variety of purposes. Story reading fosters language development, story comprehension and literacy skills from preschool through primary grades. Multiple reads of children’s literature develop oral-language skills and cultivate vocabulary development, content knowledge and exposures to the complexities of sentence structures and nuances of language. You will learn strategies to encourage active listening, spark questions, and promote and extend conversations. It is the purposeful talk and reading experiences that can jumpstart the career of a successful reader.
