The Association of Library Services to Children (ALSC) has identified five activities that caregivers can focus on when helping their child grow into a reader. These activities are Read, Sing, Talk, Write and Play. Check out our Early Literacy bulletin board this month to find songs that you can take with you and share with your child in the car, while out running errands or at home. The ALSC Activities for Early Literacy bulletin board is located in our children’s area.
Singing is a fun and wonderful way to help your child learn new words and share a musical story. Caregivers can also add some silly hand motions to increase the fun. These motions also help children develop important gross and fine motor skills as well.
