Learning to read and write starts well before Kindergarten. Pre-literacy skills including letter recognition, letter sounds, and rhyming can be taught to toddlers using fun games and activities like the ones in our resource books below. Even infants can benefit from early literacy education by reading books with a parent or caregiver. Simply listening to stories helps babies develop print awareness, phonemic awareness and letter knowledge.
Through the world of literacy, children learn about many forms of writing, communicating, and sharing. Start children on a path toward a lifetime of reading and writing with our developmentally appropriate literacy activities.
From the first marks of the youngest writers to ready writers who use their expanding vocabularies to express increasingly complex ideas, Playful Writing offer teachers, caregivers, and parents of children ages three to eight, 150 ideas for inspiring and scaffolding children’s writing explorations. Select the activities that best support specialized learning objectives as you help your young writers cultivate their creativity!
