Welcome to Our Blog

We plan to use this blog to share our information with parents who are unable to attend the workshop. Those who attended can use this as a convenient tool to communicate with other parents or educational professionals by posting comments.

Our blog will include titles of books and activities that can promote literacy within the home. We will provide a list of resources that will include anything from ideas to places to visit that may help contribute to a child's literacy growth. Feel free to ask questions and get answers through our blog.

Grocery Lists!

Age Group: Preschool/Kindergarten
Children this age are more advanced in their literacy skills and enjoy being self-sufficient. Include your child in everyday errands and activities such as creating a grocery list. Encourage your child to help write the list, or to create their own "list" which may include pictures and/or words. These words do not have to be conventional to be meaningful to your child. By including your child in this process they can become aware of one of the many purposes of writing; making lists.
