Abstract :

Very young children have been reported to learn reading and vocabulary skills when they are allowed to read books aloud to themselves. Children seem to use mumble reading as a form of egocentric speech through which internalization can lead to the development of abstraction. Thus, students can be given time for mumble reading when they are not sharing a book with other students or not reading to a group of students. The teacher can then evaluate the student's progress and ability to read silently.
