Literacy info to adults:

aside #1: We talked about the early literacy skill vocabulary, which is knowing the specific names for objects and concepts

aside #2: Having a large vocabulary, knowing the names of things, is one of the skills children need when they later learn to sound out words.  Books give us different words that those we use in conversation or that are on television, so choose a wide variety of books to read to your child.

aside #3:  Prompting children to act out the meaning of words provides them with a fun and active way to learn new words and to practice their vocabulary skills (like pointing out objects and body parts during the reading and singing of Spider on the Floor)
