Set your little one up for reading success by building a strong foundation of pre-literacy skills in the preschool years! We all know that children need to know the alphabet and have exposure to letters from a young age, but it’s also SO important for them to be able to hear, understand, and play with speech sounds.
Playing simple games with sounds and words early on to build phonological awareness will play a large part in supporting your child’s learning-to-read journey!
Below are some examples (not an exhaustive list) of what skills to practice and when!
