One type of early literacy skill you can help your infant develop is print awareness. In a nutshell, your child has mastered this skill when he/she notices that print is everywhere: in books, periodicals, banners, signs, packaging, etc. It also includes knowing how to handle a book and being aware that the print has meaning.
A helpful literacy website, Reading Rockets, lists guidelines for implementation that were written by The Texas Education Agency. These guidelines were developed to help parents and teachers infuse print awareness in the lives of children.
As I am always looking for new ideas, I would love to hear what you are doing to promote Print Awareness in your child’s life.
