Early Literacy

THE HUMAN BRAIN IS GETTING READY TO READ FROM THE MOMENT A CHILD IS BORN.

Early literacy is what your child knows about reading and writing…before they can read and write.

Children begin to develop these skills right from birth.  Parents and caregivers who understand the importance of early literacy can help develop the 6 essential pre-reading skills to be sure their child begins school ready to read.

Librarians at the Warren Newport Public Library are trained in a national early literacy initiative, “Every Child Ready To Read”.  This program teaches parents, caregivers and early childhood educators about the 6 early literacy skills, recent brain research and techniques for reading and selecting books for children.  This engaging, instructional workshop demonstrates how to nurture these skills in children ages 0-5, and provides practical tips on how to incorporate early literacy activities into your daily routine.

Warren-Newport Public Library Children’s department offers this workshop in the library each fall.

Early Childhood Educator and Parent workshops are also available. If you belong to an organization that serves parents of young children or are an early childhood educator and are interested in having us give a workshop at your facility, please contact Janet Colwell at 847-244-5150 x 3056 or email:  jcolwell[at]wnpl[dot]info.
