Early Literacy Tip of the Month

Every Child Ready to Read

Tip of the month:
 Our early literacy tip of the month focuses on print awareness, helping your child to be aware that print has meaning.  There are signs, T-shirts, banners and fliers all around us.  When your child notices a stop sign or the sign for their favorite restaurant, they are “reading”.  As you read with them, run your finger under the text.  This helps them to know that you are reading the words and not the pictures.
