Each week, we will share an early literacy tip!
To support early literacy sing, talk, read, write and play with your child
This week’s tip is on:
Phonological awareness: The ability to hear and play with the smaller sounds in words.
Did you know that singing is not just fun but actually quite important for children? People claim that they can’t sing on key, but don’t let that stop you. Singing slows down language and there is often a different note for each syllable. Both of these help children hear the smaller sounds in words. This will later help them sound out words as they learn to read.
