Most parents let their children talk and share while they read to their children. Some parents may not know how to let this interaction happen naturally. I have heard of parents who don’t let their children interrupt them while they read.
If you ever run into a parent who thinks it’s rude for a child to talk or interrupt while they read, please share this post with them. It includes a video of a mom and son interacting while she reads a book to him.
When a teacher has a classroom full of children, interactions are limited. Parents have the opportunity to make read alouds a special learning and bonding experience by encouraging their children to talk and share their thoughts.
