Early reading offers lots of advantages. Reading is an activity that in this stage, the age in which they are developing lots of aspects of their life, provides children a base for ever that will help face lots of situations in their adult life. Among the benefits, some are remarkable: the acquisition of vocabulary, improvement of expression, development of imagination and creativity, improvement of the reading comprehension skill, reduction of concentration problems and development of personality.
In ISP Infantil we share with the students these first steps of discovering books, using books adapted to their age. They learn to read in their classrooms, but they also visit the library of the “older” students, where they have a reserved area for them.
The best way of instilling in children the love for reading is to read them out loud. In our school we use this methodology, but we also encourage them to do it at their homes, since watching their parents reading and telling such amusing things, children feel a special attachment for what come in the books. Little by little, they will be encouraged to explore the stories of their pages, they will want to learn reading in order to do the same as their parents and little by little they will become independent readers.
