Episode 1: Cultivating a Love of Literacy in Your Littles
· Announcements: If you have subscribed to my blog and podcast, you will get a free copy of my eBook, Read Aloud Tips for Parents.
· Discover what kind of a learner your child is to help you cater to how you read aloud to them; their personalities will largely determine that. There are 7 learning styles; they are:
o Visual (spatial)
o Aural (musical)
o Physical (kinesthetic)
o Verbal (linguistic)
· No quiz needs to be administered to determine your child’s learning preference, but strict observation of your child will yield clear results.
