AWARENESS OF WRITTEN WORDS AND LANGUAGE
Teachers Call This Skill:
Print awareness is the discovery that letters and words surround us in our daily life. Whether we are looking at the letters in our name, or seeing a sign, print holds important meaning.
Young kids must also learn how to hold a book, turn pages as they read, and recognize that print goes from left to right when reading and writing.
Children begin to develop print awareness as early as infancy and continue to develop print awareness throughout early childhood.
Signs of good print awareness are:
When a child holds a book the right way.
When a child distinguishes between letters and words.
When a child writes scribbles on paper and asks you to read what they wrote.
