The preschool age is a magical time for watching reading and writing growth blossom.
I often get asked what we should work on with preschoolers to help them get ready to read.
- Read-aloud to preschoolers every day! This is the single most important thing we can do to help kids develop language skills. I have a ton of book lists to help you find great books to read to kids.
- Build phonological awareness. This is done through playful oral language activities. See lots of ideas below.
- If your child has an interest, incorporate playful alphabet identification and sound activities. Visit our alphabet activities and games page for lots of fun ideas.
