For Parents and Caregivers
Your child's journey towards becoming a reader and writer starts with the words, stories, and songs she hears from you each day. When you name the things you see around you, read a book aloud, or give your child a crayon to scribble with, you are helping to lay the foundation for her to become a reader and writer.
Below, find resources to help you turn your daily activities into rich opportunities for talking, reading, and writing together.
