In this video, we see parents and children interacting in a variety of undertakings which encourage the development of literacy. These activities include going to the library, writing a shopping list, reading print on labels, writing notes to a friend, and reading together.
The module then shifts to the classroom where teachers demonstrate the specific strategies they use that are designed to assist the children in their growing understanding of print. These approaches include modeling reading and writing, providing children with reading and writing materials, encouraging children to recognize letters, helping them spell words, and asking open-ended questions.
