Early Literacy

TALK, SING, WRITE AND PLAY!

Help prepare young children to be readers with these five simple activities that are fun yet powerful ways to encourage early learning.

  • Talk Together

    Children learn about language by listening and joining in the conversation. Talk as you play and choose books that interest your children to talk about!

  • Sing Together

    Fingerplays, rhymes and songs slow down language so children can hear the different sounds that make up words.

  • Read Together

    Shared reading gets children ready to read. Kids who are read to are more likely to enjoy reading themselves.

  • Write Together

    Encourage your children to write or draw. A first step to writing is to stimulate small motor muscle control with toys and art supplies.

  • Play Together

    Children learn language by interacting with others and also with their physical surroundings
