  • What is Early Literacy?
    Early literacy is what children know about reading and writing before they actually learn to read and write. Early Literacy is not the teaching of reading. It’s building a foundation for reading through a set of positive interactions so that when they are taught to read, they’re ready. The interactions that children have with books, paper, crayon, music and the adults in their lives will be their building blocks for language, reading and writing development.
    Parents and caregivers are a child's first and best teacher! There are 5 simple practices that help children get ready to read. Incorporating these practices into your daily routine makes a huge difference. It's never too early  or too late! They are:

    • Begin reading books early, even when your child is a newborn.
    • Make book sharing a special time.
    • Let your baby see you reading.
    • Visit your public library often.
    • Children who enjoy being read to will want to learn how to read.
