Getting ready to read by talking

This past week at Play & Learn we focused on talking as a strategy for building pre-reading skills. Although we talk with our children every day, sometimes the value of simply making time for conversation can get lost in the busyness of daily activity. One of our participants commented, "It is important to speak to your child and wait for their personal response. You should also include your child in things that allow them to communicate and problem solve with their peers."

You can learn more about talking as an action that builds pre-reading skills by visiting our early literacy resource guide and by joining us at Play & Learn. Our strategy for the week of January 9 is singing!
