For Preschool Teachers and Parents

Young children are like sponges. Every day they learn skills that will help them become readers. Infants, toddlers, and preschoolers become aware of books and print and learn about sounds and letters. Preschool educators play a critical role in promoting literacy, preventing reading difficulties, and preparing young children for kindergarten. There has been many research-based information  collected especially for preschool teachers, to aid them in their teaching. It is very important to support our children and students in order to build a foundation for literacy in the formative years between infancy and five years of age.

One strong predictor of success in reading is a child’s familiarity with the letters of the alphabet — knowing a letter’s name, shape and sound.
