Literacy All Around Us 
Tips to turn everyday moments into learning moments.  

Think about what holds your child's attention the most?
Tune in to what they're interested in and talk with them about it.
Use questions such as "Why do you think that?" or "How do you know ?" to spark deeper conversations. 
Use everyday chores as opportunities for Literacy! This Letter hunt the while folding laundry is a great idea!
