HSinNH Posted October 2, 2012 Share Posted October 2, 2012 DD9 said to me yesterday that she enjoys me reading aloud books to her more than reading them herself. When I asked her why, she claimed that "when you read to me, I can see the book in my head like a movie. But when I read the book, I am too busy looking at the words to see the movie in my head." She had some vision issues when she was around 6-years-old, which have since been corrected with vision therapy. I am hoping she did not miss some key developmental reading components during this time. I know that she comprehends what she reads because she can summarize her chapter books for me and answer any questions I have. I asked DD11 (an avid reader) if she "sees" the movie in her head and she stated that she can, but it is "clearer" during read-aloud time. Is this something that comes with practice? Did she miss something during her early years? But, most of all, is this something that I can help her with or does it simply come with practice? Thank you for any advice!!
