Encourage your child to read things in your home! Start with the products right in your kitchen. Sometimes kids just need the confidence to read and the assurance that you think they can too!
Your kids can pick-up amazing amounts of reading skills just from the world around them. This is real learning! Here's a simple way to add some beginning reading skills to your home.
Make them a book!
1. Cut off the fronts of boxes.
2. Sort largest to smaller - not necessary, but I thought it helped. Your child can participate.
3. Punch holes in the side, add office rings, and read! This is one sturdy book - enjoy!
Reading can take place anywhere you are! Driving in the car, out for a walk, at the store and more.

adult must draw attention to the letters and sounds in environmental-print words in order for
children to recognize environmental print as words rather than pictures
