Early Lit Bits

Do you keep hearing the term “Early Literacy” but you’re not exactly sure what that means?   It’s really just the stuff kids learn about language and communication before they are actually reading and writing.  So that would include not only the basic mechanics (like knowing when to say he or him and when to change words for pluralization), but also developing a broad background of knowledge for understanding terms and word usage for a wide vocabulary base.  So yes, by all means introduce your child to letters and sounds, but remember that the greatest start you can give them is varied life experience and the words to communicate what they see and feel and do.
