Literacy Resources

June 28, 2024

Literacy—the ability to read and comprehend text—starts at an early age. In fact, the sooner you can read to, and with, your child the better.

Teaching your child a love or reading doesn't require a lot of time or investment. A short bedtime story for infants and toddlers is a good start. As little as 20 minutes a day for pre-school- and school-aged children is all it takes. And remember, a regular visit to the library can be a fun outing for you and your child.

Make reading a habit, and you'll soon notice cues from your child that s/he is ready to start reading on his/her own. Letter and word recognition, mimicking sounds and repeating words you read are a few things to keep your eyes and ears open for.

Talk to your classroom teacher to learn more about the variety of resources available for families.
