Story Time at Tutor Time

teacher and student readingThere’s one powerful learning experience that builds language and literacy skills and strengthens cognitive and social-emotional skill. That learning experience is Story Time—a time when children can flex their natural ability to make sense of the world through story and play.

We know Story Time is important, which is why we choose a selection of books that specifically meet the needs of each age group and send them to all of our schools every other month. They also receive an activity sheet that shows how to read that book in a way that’s most beneficial for the children’s development.

Don’t miss our Story Time at Home Newsletter, full of awesome facts pertaining to language and literacy development, alongside ideas for reading at home.

The Power of Reading

A Message From Johnna Weller, Chief Academic Officer

Of all the moments you share with your child each day, reading a story together is one of the most impactful to your child’s development. When you curl up together and open a new or favorite book, you are deepening critical social and emotional bonds with your child and creating a language-rich experience that fuels the developing brain. Why is reading aloud to your child so powerful?
  • Stories help your child learn about themselves and others.
  • Picture books are filled with rich vocabulary that develops your child’s oral language skills.
  • Reading a book together helps your child with critical life skills, such as sustaining focus and attention, controlling impulses, and developing social skills like empathy.

Humans process and organize experience by thinking narratively, about who, what, where, and why things happen around them. Young children know this instinctively and are drawn to storytelling and books, wanting to hear them again and again. When you sit your child on your lap and point to the pictures, make animal sounds, or recite favorite phrases, you’re making connections that last a lifetime!
