September 8th is Int'l Literacy Day
617 million children and adolescents worldwide are not achieving minimum proficiency levels in reading and math! During the Coronavirus Pandemic, many schools and child care centers were closed disrupting the education of 62.3% of the world’s student population. Reading is one of the most important skills your child will ever learn. Many parents incorrectly believe that literacy skills start at the beginning of Kindergarten. In reality, from birth, babies and small children are gathering the skills they’ll need to learn to read such as singing nursery rhymes. The years between ages 3 and 5 are critical to your child's literacy development, Although having books at home is a great start, reading to your child 20-30 minutes a day will set your child up for reading success. You can also start talking about letters, numbers, and words that rhyme. The best way to instill a love for and interest in reading is to simply read to your child every day. For even more fun literacy games, check out our website for some fun games we've put together that you can play at home and in the car with your child.
