Print concepts

Focus this week on print concepts. Help your child to find the front and back covers of a book and to locate the author and illustrator’s name. It is important that you show your child how to care for a book and to turn the pages gently. While reading together, point to each word as it is read. You will be showing your child the direction you are reading and helping them to pick up on new words. Or, try asking your child to show the following parts of the book before reading: front cover, back cover, author, where the story starts and the first page.
