Early Literacy Practices
(Updated in September 2021)
Research shows that there are early literacy skills that children need to pick up on their way to becoming fluent readers:
Recognising letters and knowing their names and sounds.
Being able to describe objects and events.
Understanding that words are made of smaller sounds and being able to hear and play with these smaller sounds.
Understanding that the print on a page represent words and knowing how to follow the words on a page and use a book.
Knowing the names of things, feelings and concepts.
