Enjoy this week's Tips4Kids, Wissahickon School District's literacy tips that are tailored to specific age groups to help your child(ren) learn to love reading and develop a solid foundation to come to Kindergarten ready to learn and grow. 

Babies (0-1)   Sing to your baby while stroking arms, legs and feet. Give your baby a gentle massage while talking or singing the whole time.      

Toddlers (2-3)Toddlers want to be independent. Encourage independence by offering three or four books to choose from, letting your toddler help turn pages, and asking for help as you find things on a page. Your child will love to finish sentences in books with repetitive phrasing or rhymes.

Preschoolers (4-5)Say two words to your child that start with the same sound. Ask your child: Can you hear the “j-j-j” sound in J-j-j jump and J-j-j juice?
