Early Literacy Skills


I have created a learning packet that is being mailed to your house this week to supplement the academic learning activities I post here on the blog. In the mean time here is how you can work on your child’s early literacy skills at home.

Everyday at school we practice book handling and early literacy skills.  While reading with your child today work on some of the skills below:

  • Holding the book right side up
  • Turning pages one at a time
  • Pointing to pictures 
  • Discriminating between words and pictures
  • Running finger along words being read by an adult
  • Being gentle with books 
  • Identifying letters and pictures
