Five Fun Ways to Boost Literacy in your classroom or at home TODAY!

1. Read to Me is an engaging site where kids can listen to books told by celebrities.

2. Dance and Learn Musical Letters-A gross motor game to get those kiddos moving and learning letters!

3. Playdough and Letters-I found the picture on pinterest and there was not a direct link. I found alphabet printables here that you can print. Have your child roll out playdough to build the letters of the alphabet. Fine motor plus literacy learning=good times!

4. Magazine Letters-This activity will be sure to take up plenty of time! Get out your old magazines, have your child cut out letters they find. This is a wonderful fine motor activity as well as literacy learning task as well. Depending on their age and literacy level, have them spell the alphabet, their name or simple sight words as they glue them to paper. Find out more here.

5. Letter Games for Toddlers-Easy to make games to play with your toddler to promote letter recognition!
