Early Literacy

Grow A Reader @ MCPL

Learning to read begins before your children start school. Help your children develop early literacy skills now and they will have an easier time learning to read when they begin school.  Children learn best by doing and they love doing things with you! You know your child best and can tell when they are calm and relaxed. This is when they will be most receptive to learning. Ten of the best ways to help your child get ready to read are: talking & listening, singing & rhyming, reading & sharing, writing & creating, and playing & imagining.
