Lifelong Learning: Reading Skills for Kids


[MUSIC] [DR. BRETT MILLER]
If you’re a parent and want to develop lifelong learners in your children, I think there’s a range of things that
you can do. You can read books to children every day. You’re giving them not only experience to
the content of what’s in the book in terms of story, the vocabulary, the sorts of background
knowledge that you build through reading. But it also gives them an understanding of
the structure in the text, the flow of reading from left to right in English, flipping of
a page to get you to the next content. You can ask children questions to try to encourage
them to think about what’s going to happen next—what we talk about as “W-H” questions
in English: who, what, when, where, why? Also creating an environment where they see
role models that are involved in these sort of lifelong processes of learning. Do whatever
activities are going to be fun for you to engage with your children. [MUSIC]

  1. Cheers for the video content! Sorry for butting in, I would appreciate your initial thoughts. Have you researched – Millawdon Future Ticket Trick (erm, check it on google should be there)? It is a good one of a kind product for teaching children to read without the headache. Ive heard some extraordinary things about it and my BF finally got great success with it.

  2. talk to my 6 month old in Filipino ( tinyurl.com/y6e8g2cn ) and my husband talks to him in English (his first language) because we want our baby to be bilingual. Would your program be effective if I teach him your program (i.e. reading in English) even when I don't talk to him in English. Or would it require for me to speak in English with my baby and so not teach him to be bilingual, in order to use your program?
