Read the Room at Home

by Jill & Cathy on July 14, 2013

Read the Room Labels for Your HomeOne way that teachers of early readers get their students exposed to as many words as possible is to have students “read the room” in the classroom.  Objects around the room are labeled so that students can see the letters/words associated with the objects.  Children soon learn to identify those objects they see with the words that correspond to them.  Some may just begin by associating a first letter with the first sound in the word, but whatever their level of readiness, this is a great beginning way to expose children to words.  So why not start even earlier than the classroom by putting up words in the rooms of your home?  We have created word cards associated with four common rooms of your home – the family room, the kitchen, the bedroom and the bathroom (don’t worry…we’ve left out the words that make kids giggle!) We have also provided a blank form so that you can write in specific objects in your own home.
