Fundamentals of Pre-K Literacy
Tomie dePaola once said, “Reading is important, because if you can read, you can learn anything about everything and everything about anything.” The importance of reading and the benefits of starting to teach children to read at a young age Pre-k literacy lays a great foundation for children to take on learning as they enter kindergarten. When children enter the third grade, they will be reading to learn rather than learning to read.
In pre-k literacy, children learn how to identify letters and know the sounds they represent. From recreational rhyming and sing-alongs to wooden blocks with letters and puzzles, children learn the best with fun activities and when they are engaged. With young children and their short attention span, finding creative ways to engage them could be a challenge.
Use of Technology in Pre-K Literacy
This is where technology can come in to help! As a parent, you can initiate pre-k literacy with the help of tablet enabled early literacy activities. You can use an iPad’s media capabilities to engage your child in interactive and fun learning experiences. The ABCs game in Osmo Little Genius Starter Kit has a playful and interactive character, Mo, prompting children to build letters out of colorful sticks and rings. It is a great way to make children think of alphabets learning as a fun activity. The highly interactive digital media will keep children absorbed in their learning content and will associate learning with excitement and fun.
We all know the importance of pre-k literacy and now with the integration of interactive tablet games, children will be able to learn more effectively through fun activities. Pre-k literacy enables children to better respond to learning efforts in kindergarten and be ready to counter any difficulties with regard to reading, writing, drawing and more.
