Today I read a book they had never heard before to my kids. I would read one page at a time and then I would ask questions. It’s a good idea to ask kids about what they are reading anyway to work on reading comprehension. However, today we were super intentional about it, and I really asked them about the fine details. Activities like this work on attentiveness and having them really learn to listen. I also find that my 3 year old is quiet squirmy during stories, so I really emphasized having the girls sitting still and showing me they were listening by having control over their bodies and actions.
“We must pay more careful attention, therefore, to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away.” – Hebrews 2:1
