Storytime To Go – E is for Early Literacy
The 5 most important things parents and caregivers can do to support their child’s early literacy learning.
Talk Talking with children helps them learn to express themselves with language.
Sing Singing, which often includes rhymes, helps children become aware of sounds in language. This will help them decode words when they learn to read.
Read Do you know the best way to help your children become successful readers? Read to and with them from birth!
Write Through writing, children realize that sounds are represented by letters and words and that text means something.
Play Children learn about the world through play. The knowledge they gain from playing helps children comprehend what they read.
