Encouraging Early Literacy

Beginning at birth and during your child’s early years, crucial connections are formed and strengthened in the brain through repeated playful, loving, and stimulating experiences. Each time you read a story, tickle a belly, sing a song, or play peek-a-boo, connections are made between brain cells. Repetition makes the connections stronger, so sing that song again!

Additional Resources logo helps kids learn to read through phonics, and teaches lessons in math, social studies, art, music, and much more.
