  • Point out different types of printed materials in the home such as magazines, letters, and cereal boxes.

We can find inspiration for early literacy in even the tiniest things, like crayons or a stuffed animal. What color is the crayon? What letter does Benny Bear start with? Sometimes we can promote early literacy by our smallest actions, such as reading in front of our children or pointing out how often adults need to read to get around. Look at that Stop sign; it starts with an “S.” Here’s a newspaper headline; can you find all the Ds?

When your children see you reading or begin to realize how important reading is to you, they will naturally become more excited about learning to read. After all, they only want to be just like you!And if you happen to need more inspiration, just download our Quick Picks handout for this week’s Story Time. We’ll be learning about tiny things!
