- While reading aloud, ask your child to turn the page each time. Start by voicing and signing together, and then drop the spoken word and just cue with the sign.
- Create a kindergarten reading game by making a collaborative book. Children can contribute one page about their day in Kindergarten. Then bind the book and read it together. Encourage the author of each page to say, “My page tells all about how we ________ in Kindergarten!” For a variation of this activity, you can do it as a family activity and do a book about things you do as a family at home, on vacation, etc.
