Don’t leave home without learning to read and write. This website and the soon to be released book will show parents and preschool teachers how to help children start to read and write before they begin grade one. Soon after birth babies begin to learn to read and write. By one year of age, half of our babies already try to write when offered a pencil. Well before two years of age, toddlers understand more if they’ve been read to regularly. Before three years, half of our preschoolers can already read at least one word. They accomplish all this even when their caregivers are not early literacy experts. Imagine how much faster children would learn if parents and pre-grade-one educators knew more about how to teach reading and writing!
