5 Early Literacy Practices

boy reading and laughing

Every month our children's staff plans to share a tip to help develop early literacy skills in children. For our first post, we will talk about the 5 early literacy practices identified by researchers with the American Library Association* for the Every Child Ready to Read initiative. We will share some of our favorite ways to use these practices at home and in school settings in future posts!

The 5 early literacy practices are:

  • Talking
  • Singing
  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Playing

At Bay County Library System, we are working hard to include all 5 early literacy practices in our programs to help children in Bay County learn to read and learn that reading is fun!
