Professor Wu Nianyang
Professor Wu Nianyang and her team believe that reading involves multisensory activities for children, such as listening, narrating, drawing, building, performing, etc. These activities allow children to feel the words and experience the story, which encourage children’s understanding of the content in a more engaging and interactive way. These act as a positive influence upon children’s cognitive development and help cultivate good reading habits and interests.
Encouraging Cognitive Development through Reading
In this sharing session, the concept of interactive reading will be introduced through a demonstration of how three picture books could be read along with a series of relevant extended activities.
Reading as an activity should not only be centred on its content. It should involve cognitive engagement, speaking tasks, and body movements. Through such extended reading activities that are based on the content of the book, children will develop deeper comprehensive and interactive skills that develop their cognitive ability.
