Adults play a critical role in supporting reading at home, providing an opportunity to reinforce literacy skills and social emotional learning.
No matter what book students are reading, adults can help them reflect on skills like self-awareness and relationship building by asking them to analyze characters’ behavior, empathize with characters and relate situations to their own life.
