How to Create a Literate Home

A father and son reading togetherWhat exactly is a “literate home?” It is an environment that encourages children to learn to read and write and become lifelong readers and writers. Transforming your home into a literate home is simple and inexpensive. You need to consider what kinds of materials to have on hand and how to arrange materials so your child will use them. More importantly, you need to interact with your child in ways that foster literacy development. Follow the tips in the pages below to learn about what materials parents need and what parents can do. If you like, print the page that relates to the age of your child and stick it on the fridge, for regular reference.
