Literacy Tips for Children.
Mraz, Maryann; Padak, Nancy; Baycich, Dianna
This publication provides information that can support parents in their efforts to assist their young children's literacy development. Provided in a format that can be copied, these "literacy tips" are supplied for these three age groups: ages 0-3, ages 4-6, and ages 7-8 and are preceded by lists of ideas for using them in a family literacy program. The lists are divided into the same three age groups. Each group of tips offers a few major developmental milestones, some suggestions for age-appropriate parent support, tips about the kind of books children might enjoy, and a short list of book titles appropriate for children at that age level. A list of six Web sites that contain research-based suggestions for parents and that are written to be accessible for parents in family literacy programs is also included. (YLB)
