Examination of the Relation of Children Reading Aloud to Others and Reading Proficiency.
Bartolomei, Gina
The literature on reading aloud indicates a positive result when children read aloud with others. Reading aloud is found to enhance a student's vocabulary, to familiarize students with language patterns and sentence structure, to help students develop listening skills and increased attention spans, and to build children's curiosity in reading. Children's creativity and competence were closely related to the quantity of parent-child reading in the home, which can enhance the child's early reading capabilities. Educators continue to recognize that children who come from homes in which children read with parents have an advantage over those students not involved in shared reading, and the difference in these circumstances may be considered a factor in the continual discrepancy of reading proficiencies in schools today.
