Early Literacy Practices

May contain: cup and pencil

Early Literacy begins at home.  You can help your child get ready to read with simple activities you can do every day!

PLAY – Play is children’s work!  Playing helps children put thoughts into words and think symbolically so they understand that spoken and written words can stand for real objects and experiences.

WRITE – Writing and reading go together.  Scribbling and writing help children learn that written words stand for spoken language.

TALK – Talking with children is one of the best ways to help them learn new words and information.

SING – Songs are a natural way for children to learn about language.

READ – Reading together is the single most important way to help children get ready to read.
