Hearies can use Closed-captioning for reading!!
I laughed when I read this newsletter from my youngest daughter's school library. I wonder if the parents would use it for their HEARING kids to read the closed-captioning on t.v. while watching. My kids always read while watching T.V., and they read books. Their reading level on the standardized test was very high. So, I guess it explains that. In the short article, it says, Did you know your kids can improve their reading while watching t.v.? Go to the set-up menu on your sets and turn on the closed-captioning option. Then, as the dialogue happens, the kids can read along with it down below. Easy! Since I thought it was so cool, I decided to post it for you.
