Spring and Summer 2019
Help prepare young children to be readers with these five simple activities that are fun yet powerful ways to encourage early learning.
- Talk together. Children learn about language by listening and joining in the conversation. Talk as you play and choose books that interest your children to talk about!
- Sing together. Fingerplays, rhymes and songs slow down language so children can hear the different sounds that make up words. Ask a librarian to help you find familiar or new songs to sing together.
- Read together. Shared reading gets children ready to read. Kids who are read to are more likely to enjoy reading themselves.
- Write together. Encourage your children to write or draw. A first step to writing is to stimulate small motor muscle control with toys and art supplies.
- Play together. Children learn language by interacting with others and also with their physical surroundings. See how libraries encourage play within our spaces.
