Why Early Literacy?

Children develop literacy from birth and excel as they develop both a rich vocabulary and a deep understanding of many concepts and language structures.  They develop reasoning, creative thinking and inquiry skills and also learn that the written language is a system for representing oral language. They learn concepts about print (what is a letter, what is a word, directionality) and concepts about books (the purpose of a book and features) and that speech can be segmented into small units of sound and learn how to play with language (phonological awareness) by rhyming, segmenting and blending.

 The result is they learn to read books independently and begin to see themselves as readers and writers.      

Young children who perform better than their peers in reading do so for several reasons, but one of the most overlooked is lack of family talk. Far too many young children come to school with poor oral language skills because they just don't know enough words. The good news is that helping a young child is simple. By engaging kids in rich stories and having meaningful conversations with them we can help improve their oral language skills, which will eventually help them become better readers.

"The first three years of a child’s life have enormous impact on
the development of basic language and cognitive skills and lay the foundation for early literacy development.As parents are their children’s first teachers,they need to be aware of the importance of creating a language- and literacy-rich environment in the home"
