Learning to read begins with children learning about syllabics and letters. Then, they begin to put the sounds together to decode words. They start to make meaning from print. Reading out loud to your child every day and having them read to you will help them to develop these skills.

Children begin to write by drawing pictures that express their ideas. They start to add syllabics/letters and eventually words to their drawings. From there, children attempt to write simple sentences and slowly experiment with different writing styles and skills. It is important for children to write every day to develop these skills.
