Happy New Year

Research shows that you can ensure your child’s success in learning to read once he gets to school. How? By concentrating on six skills.

Print Motivation-loving books and reading

Phonological Awareness-ability to hear and play with sounds in words

Vocabulary-knowing the names of things

Narrative Skills– the ability to tell and retell stories

Print Awareness-knowing how to handle books and see print all around us

Letter Knowledge-knowing what letters look like and that they relate to sounds

Story time at the library can help you learn more about these skills. Join us on Tuesdays at 10:15. You are your child’s first teacher. Let us help you enjoy the time you spend together. Stop by and show off your print motivation!
