Talking: Children learn about language by listening to other people talk and joining in the conversation.

Singing: Because of their rhyme and rhythm, songs are a natural way to learn about language.

Reading: Reading and sharing books with your child is the single most important way to get them ready to read.

Writing: Reading and writing naturally go together. Writing is anything from making marks to drawing pictures and finally writing letters.

Playing: Pretend and dramatic play are fun ways to develop language skills.

Remember, you are your child’s best teacher.
