Flying Start With Literacy: Activities for Parents and Children

    By

    Good literacy skills are vital for success at school - but often the most important foundations are laid outside the classroom. This book tells parents and carers of three to seven year olds all they need to know about how to give children the best possible start in literacy. Packed with exciting games and activities, it shows: why parental support makes such a difference; how to help a child become a good communicator; ways to encourage listening skills and why they matter; how to develop literacy through music and movement; the benefits of reading to children and telling stories; what 'phonics' is all about; and how to help children acquire the range of skills involved in learning to write. It also answers a wide range of frequently asked questions such as: Why do some children find learning to read and write easier than others? What can I do if my child appears to be having difficulty with literacy learning? How can I help my child to learn to form letters correctly? "Flying Start with Literacy" illustrates how to use simple everyday situations as powerful ways to support literacy learning. It also suggests helpful resources and lists the best websites for additional information and advice.
