Building Vocabulary and Speech Skills With Themed Stories

The act of reading helps you develop your speaking skills. Speaking skills and reading skills are fundamentally connected. You increase your spoken word vocabulary faster when reading out loud. This is also one of the reasons why reading aloud is recommended for people who stutter when speaking. Reading contributes to the development of vocabulary, accuracy in grammar use, and spontaneous communication abilities, among other things.

Through the use of rich pictures and words, themed stories help children build their vocabulary knowledge. The combination of shared book reading and guided play promotes deep vocabulary knowledge. Students' semantic networks are powerful tools to support their reading ability and develop slowly over time. Here is an excellent LIST of seasonally-themed books compiled by The Speech Bubble SLF that you can use to help your child build a depth of knowledge.
