If you’d like to build your preschooler’s literacy skills, make sure that you don’t forget to foster concept of print.
WHY PRESCHOOLERS SHOULD HAVE CONCEPT OF PRINT
Having concept of print is the understanding of how books and print work, which is an emergent literacy skill. For example, the idea that we read and write from left to right and that text is used to communicate a message are both concepts of print. Having a strong understanding of the concept of print is the foundation to both reading and writing.
The best way to foster a strong concept of print in your child is to read to them often. A child’s concept of print influences their fluency and accuracy as readers as they later learn to read. It impacts their ability to write and sound out words as well.
