Raise a Reader Tip #4

Tip #4: As you go about your daily life, read signs and labels to your child.  Just incorporate that into the things you talk about each day.  For example, when you’re in the grocery store you can ask your child to find their favourite cereal.  Sure, at first they are using a combination of pictures and words to find the right cereal box but eventually they will start to recognize the consistent pattern of letters in words that are familiar.

    Environmental print is often the first that children begin to recognise. I love making “I can read” books using labels or photos of “words” the children recognise.
