Join Elmo and friends as they go on five reading adventures!
Ask kids to choose a story. Pick one of these three levels and enjoy:
Focus on the letters and the basic sounds in each word (“What letter or sound does this word start with?”). Focus on the pictures (“Can you find the circles in this picture?” or “What colors do you see here?”). Help kids figure out what the words mean (“What do you see in this picture?”).
Focus on the basic storyline. Ask questions such as “What is happening here?” Help children predict what might happen next (“What do you think Elmo might do next?” or “What do you want to happen next?”).
Read the story once, then start again and ask kids to “read” the story to you in their own words. Ask children to add on to the story (“What do you think happens after this story ends?” or “What if this weren’t the end? What might happen next?”).
Let children control the story experience by clicking the arrows to “turn pages” and clicking the words to hear what they mean and see the picture wiggle. Relate the story back to children’s own stories, connecting the main character’s experiences and feelings to their lives. Ask children to tell you about their favorite part of the story. Remember, all stories are reading adventures. Remind kids that stories can take us on adventures to places we’ve never been! When choosing a book, you might say, “What kind of adventure should we go on today?”
These bilingual read-aloud stories teach more than 30 vocabulary words! Together, enter a world of words anytime, anywhere as you read, explore, and tap! Choose a level that's right for your child.
