CHILDREN'S / Early Literacy  

What exactly is early literacy?

Early literacy is simply what children know about reading and writing before they actually read or write. Learning to read begins before children start school. From the time they are infants, children learn language and other important skills that will help them learn to read. Developing early literacy skills makes it easier for children to read once they begin school. Parents of newborns, toddlers, and preschoolers are their children's first teacher. Children that enter kindergarten with strong pre-reading skills focus on learning how to read rather than first learning those essential pre-reading skills. Parents can help their children get ready to read through five simple activities: talking, singing, reading, writing, and playing. You and your child can enjoy these activities throughout the day – at home, in the car, or anywhere you and your child spend time together.
