Ribbit Reader! The best reading buddy.
Here’s an equation we’ve enjoyed for many years. Backpack + stuffed animal + book = reading motivation!
Implementation is dependent upon my planning and organization, so truth be told-it’s off and on. When I’m on top of my game, we have Ribbit Reader involved in our week. For emerging readers, I recommend a simple reader for at least two days. Take time to read the book with your child and follow along with your finger as you point to each word. Reading repetition is wonderful, so don’t be afraid to read it over and over! For my first-grader, who is an independent reader, I recommend putting a chapter book inside to read from each day. I think the clear backpack adds to the fun! They enjoy seeing what’s inside and having others notice as well.
