what is emergent literacy?

During this story time session (and preschool parents, this will be of interest to you, as well), I will be incorporating aspects of a philosophy called emergent literacy.  Simply put, this means I will be focussing on helping your child develop his/her language and vocabulary skills, as well as letter knowledge and print awareness, among other things.  Read here for some information about emergent literacy, and ways that you as a parent or grandparent can help prepare your toddler to read, and stay tuned to this blog for more information on how I am incorporating emergent literacy into storytime.  And of course, if you have any questions about emergent literacy or about any other aspects of storytime, don’t hesitate to ask me.
