Developing conversation skills is important in literacy
Good conversation starters with children are ones that aren’t threatening. Talking about favorites improve thinking skills. Ask “What is your favorite smell, color, type of transportation, dessert?” Also, sharing a personal memory of your favorite childhood toy, place to visit or reading material makes good conversation.
Did you read about U.S. presidents last month? If not, try a book this month. Presidents add to our literary materials in numerous ways by inspiring others to write their biographies. Some biographies are very accurate and a good read. It is important to decide if you want thorough research and accuracy, or if you just want to enjoy a story about a president.
Besides being written about, most presidents have written themselves. Early presidents wrote their own speeches. Some presidents also wrote publishable materials. John Quincy Adams published a book of poetry in 1832. Thomas Jefferson helped write "The Declaration of Independence." Both Franklin Roosevelt and Theodore Roosevelt wrote well.
