Reading Together

EARLY LITERACY TIPS:

  • Read aloud with your child every day.
  • Talk with your baby.  Tell your child what you are doing as you do it  Point out and name familiar objects.
  • Read books with rhymes to help children recognize letter sounds.
  • Sing nursery rhymes to develop listening and memory skills.
  • Include wordless picture books.  Discuss the characters in the story, what they are doing, and try to guess what will happen next.
  • Give your child crayons and paper to draw and scribble.  This will develoop fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination needed for writing.
