As part of a series of manuals prepared for reading education workshops for parents and educators, this booklet focuses on reading readiness activities. Divided into three sections, the booklet describes activities for parents to use with their children that develop speaking and listening vocabularies, inquisitiveness for learning, and ability to organize time and effort. The first section defines learning readiness and the importance of language development in learning to read, then describes nine specific activities to use with preschool through second grade children. Ten activities appropriate for parents to use with children in grades three through six are presented in the second section. The last section deals with the development of areas of readiness essential to children in grades seven through twelve: motivation to succeed, background of experience, and ability to study. (AEA)
