EARLY LITERACY/PARENTING RESOURCES
Understanding that daily activities often fall in a certain order helps children adapt to the structure of school.
To make children aware of routines, ask them to tell you a story about something they did that day. Story starters:
– getting ready for bed
– walking to school
– going on a shopping trip
– visiting the library
Help your child spell words using an inexpensive magnetic alphabet. Focus on one letter each day and spell words that begin or end with that letter.
Introduce a "new word of the day" and talk about its meaning.
Spell out simple messages for your child to find.
