Simple word recognition is an important part of learning how to read and write. Have your child label common household objects and refer back to them later by creating a reading tour! A reading tour is a simple and fun way for your child to practice reading and writing words. Help your child build a bank of vocabulary words by creating your own pointer for the reading tour. With some decorative supplies, markers, and rulers or spoons, your child can create a beautiful pointer to take the family on a house-wide reading tour.
