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.

This program is for children from birth until they start kindergarten. Children in the 4K program are eligible to participate.

Stop in the library to sign your child up and receive the packet to complete the program!
