High quality child care looks like

LITERACY.

3 2 8 8 3 9 1 0 6 9 4 7 7 5 6 3 1 2

In high quality child care, children learn about the printed word at a young age. They see words everywhere in the classroom. Children’s names and photos are posted at their cubbies. Calendars and charts show schedules. Trained caregivers share stories and point out words in books. Even their art supplies are labeled. Using crayons and markers helps children develop the fine motor skills they need to write. By age 3, most children understand that pictures and writing are tools for communication.

Making Their Mark Your Child’s Journey to Writing What begins as scribbles will one day be your child’s expression of his thoughts and creativity. Here’s how you can help make that happen: Read to your baby every day. The spoken word is nutrition for your baby’s brain development just as milk is food for her bones. By age 1, she will have a vocabulary of about 70 words, but she may choose to use only a few. Lead him to letters. Display his name in his room. Provide alphabet blocks and books. Sing the alphabet song. Point to words as you read to him. Help him make the connection between marks on paper and the real world. Provide writing tools. Using crayons, pencils and markers is a step toward writing words. A flattened cardboard box or paper grocery bag makes a fine canvas. Barely gripping a crayon gives way to holding a pencil between the thumb and forefinger between ages 2 and 3. Show him the importance of writing through dramatic play. Pretend the main character of the story has to write a lot. Is he a police officer, a waiter, shopkeeper, receptionist, doctor, news reporter or teacher? Model writing daily. Children love to imitate. Let him see you write. Around age 3, his scribbles will begin to look like letters. He may draw something and tell you what it is. First comes the drawing, then the name. Praise her drawing and writing efforts. Between ages 3 and 5, she will plan the picture before she draws it. She has reached a milestone! She has mastered symbolic thinking. She understands now that the marks on paper are symbols for something else – a cat or a person. Next she’ll read and write!
