Try It: Reading Faces

Brave Writer Try It Reading Faces

Did you know that your little ones are already great at reading? Try our ideas below and see!

Reading Faces

  • Pick up a board or picture book (or for older kids, screenshot a YouTube video)
  • Read character facial expressions. (It’s okay if your child sees a different emotion than you do. Show interest and learn why!)

WorrySurpriseSadness
  • Ask: how do you know what that face is saying? Identify a curved mouth, raised eyebrows, a crinkled nose, and more.
  • Next, make your own faces. See if you can guess each other’s emotions by reading each other’s faces. 

Remember, we read more than the alphabet every day!
