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
