Developing Literacy

Children start to learn language from the day they are born. As they grow and develop, their speech and language skills become increasingly more complex. They learn to understand and use language to express their ideas, thoughts, and feelings, and to communicate with others. During early speech and language development, children learn skills that are important to the development of literacy (reading and writing). This stage, known as emergent literacy, begins at birth and continues through the preschool years.

You can help your child develop literacy skills during regular activities without adding extra time to your day. There are also things you can do during planned play and reading times in preschool in El Monte, CA.

Daycare in Arcadia can be a helpful alternative for parents who don’t have as much time to spare because of work and other activities that need more of their attention.

Show your children that reading and writing are a part of everyday life and can be fun and enjoyable. Activities for preschool children include the following:

  • Talk to your child during daily routine activities such as bath or mealtime and respond to his or her questions
  • Introduce new vocabulary words during holidays and special activities such as outings to the zoo, the park, and so on
  • Engage your child in singing, rhyming games, and nursery rhymes
  • Read picture and story books that focus on sounds, rhymes, and alliteration (words that start with the same sound, as found in Dr. Seuss books
  • Encourage your child to describe or tell a story about his/her drawing and write down the words
