Did you know that November is National Family Literacy Month?
As library workers, of course, we want to help your children develop a love of reading. As family members, I assume you do too, or you wouldn’t be reading this post. But did you know that you can help your child develop literacy skills by doing more than just reading books? There are five practices of early literacy that can be incorporated into your day to help your child grow and develop.
You might be looking at this thinking, Oh great, now they want me to add FIVE more things into my already stretched thin day. But this doesn’t have to be a huge production. You can combine some of them and do them at the same time! In fact, I’m sure you are already doing some of these things. Now I encourage you to do them with a little bit more intention so you can help boost your child’s development and love of reading.
