early literacy skills

Why sing in storytime?  Singing provides an active participation opportunity to build vocabulary and develop sound discrimination, two important aspects of reading readiness.  Occasionally, I will post the words to a song or fingerplay and point to the words as we sing or say them.  I do this to help develop your child’s knowledge that words that we say also exist in print (print recognition).   This, too, will help to lay the foundation for reading readiness.
