Early literacy is what young children know and learn about reading and writing before they can actually read and write. ⁠
⁠
Research points to six early literacy skills that are essential for young children to become successful readers. ⁠
⁠
1. VOCABULARY  Knowing the names of things. Most children enter school knowing about 4,000 words. ⁠
⁠
2. PRINT MOTIVATION  Interest in and enjoyment of books. A child with print motivation enjoys being read to, plays with books and pretends to write. ⁠
⁠
3. PRINT AWARENESS  Knowing how to hold a book and follow words on a page. A child points to words on the page of a book. ⁠
⁠
4. LETTER KNOWLEDGE  Awareness that letters are different from each other. A child knows the names of letters and their sounds.⁠
⁠
5. NARRATIVE SKILLS  Making up stories and describing things. A child describes what happened at a birthday party or on a trip to the children’s museum. ⁠
⁠
6. PHONOLOGICAL AWARENESS  Hearing and playing with the smaller sounds in words. A child hears and creates rhymes, says words with sounds or chunks left out and can put two-word chunks together to make one word.⁠

One of our young guests and his sister found our woodpecker stuffed animal at the Caring Station and began to help bandage it up. After, he brought the woodpecker to the Sharing Station and built a nest for it using all of the different materials in the station. ⁠
