Possible Asides to Parents & Caregivers

Reading books with novel words and learning to describe things in different ways helps build vocabulary.

Pointing out letters or words on a page, and asking children to say words with you, helps them understand that printed words and letters correspond to what they hear.

Singing familiar songs helps children build awareness of the sounds that make up larger words.
