This two page backgrounder provides information about the importance of developmentally appropriate literacy practices- at home and in school.
When teachers and parents plan children’s environments and activities carefully so that literacy is an integral part of everything they do, then literacy learning becomes a natural and meaningful part of children’s everyday lives (J. Schickedanz, 1986). This site helps you understand how to enhance literacy at home.
Literacy is more than reading and writing. Working together families can help support literacy development and success for their children.
