Talk, Sing, Read, Write, Play...Together!
Children learn about language by listening and joining in the conversation. Talk as you play and choose books that interest your children to talk about!
Fingerplays, Rhymes & Songs slow down language so children can hear the different sounds that make up words. Ask a librarian to help you find familiar or new songs to sing together.
Shared reading gets children ready to read. Kids who are read to are more likely to enjoy reading themselves.
Read To Me videos show how fun and easy shared reading is.
Encourage your children to write or draw. A first step to writing is to stimulate small motor muscle control with toys and art supplies.
Children learn language by interacting with others and also with their physical surroundings. See how libraries encourage play within our spaces.
