Early Literacy: Storytelling Tips

  • Early experiences with spoken and written language set the stage and are the building blocks for children to become successful readers.
  • Talk! – Children learn language through listening and conversations.
  • Read aloud EVERYDAY! – Just 15 minutes makes a lifelong reader.
  • Talk slowly and clearly.
  • Show and Tell – Talk about what you are doing as you do it.
  • PLAY – Children learn through play (building with blocks, painting, putting a puzzle together, sand and water, pretending) – Encourage children to talk about what they are doing or building by asking questions.
  • HAVE FUN AND VISIT YOUR LOCAL LIBRARY – It’s Free!
