reading my world today
What did I read today? go through your day aware of how many times your eyes make contact with words and how many times your mind processed their meaning...busy brain...expanding knowledge. Have a word awareness day with your kids. Did they read any signs in their world? What about a newspaper headline? A magazine? A storybook during the day? At bedtime? A menu in a restaurant? Words are everywhere. Every time we read a word our brain transforms the words into mental images and ideas. Can you imagine going through life illiterate and unable to figure out your world. Reading is as natural as walking through our world with our eyes wide open. Read your world...read on!
