How to Prepare Your Child for Reading Success
- Based on the most current research in emergent literacy, the I’m Ready! guidebook shows parents how they can build the critical early literacy skills that prepare young children for success in school. The guidebook offers practical strategies and concrete examples for using everyday routines and activities to build the following emergent literacy skills: conversation, vocabulary, story comprehension, print knowledge and phonological awareness. “Try it Out” sections at the end of each chapter help parents plan how they will use the strategies and reflect on their experience and their child’s progress after they’ve tried each strategy. Professionals who work with families of preschoolers (3-5 years old) will find this resource invaluable for promoting the early literacy skills that have been shown to lead to greater academic success.
