Early Literacy Tip – January 2017

Get Organized

Children are little scientists and naming and categorizing things can help children make sense of their world.  By grouping things that go together such as silverware or toys, children are noticing size, shape, colors, and uses.  All these analytical skills lead to success in academic areas such as science and math.  As an added bonus, your kitchen drawers or your toy shelf will be neat and orderly!
