These activities hone literacy skills of parents, encourage positive relationships between parent and child, and promote learning for children. They can also serve as topics of conversation for when parents are able to either telephone their children or participate in a family day at the facility.
For those programs offering time for interactive literacy activities between parents and their children, the role of the outside caregivers becomes even more prominent. They will, after all, be responsible for the childrens and their own involvement in the program. This role must be clear to all involved.
I learn[ed] today
about reading to children and how fun it would be to read to them. Kids are so
fun to read to. You can see how much they know and how they learn and what they
are thinking about. I, personally, would like to read to my children right now
and see what they know and learned.
