Point them in the right direction...

Did you know that 95% of children’s attention goes to the pictures in the book?

When you’re reading, use your finger (or a pointer) to sweep under words you have read. It will show the child that you are reading the text, not the pictures.

Here are some great ideas for pointers you can use.

**Flyswatters** (with different sized holes)


**Unsharpened pencils**

***Old Wooden Spoons**

**Witch Fingers**


**Old Car antennae**


**Bubble Wands**

**Stir stivcks**

**Plastic flowers**

Does anyone have any other suggestions?

Books shown above are:
Today is Monday by Eric Carle
Goodnight, Gorilla by Peggy Rathmann
Something from Nothing by Phoebe Gilman
Is Your Mama a Llama? by Deborah Guarino
