As always, thank you to the wonderful folks in the Youth Services Department at the West Chicago Public Library for sharing their montly Early Literacy Activities Calendar with us. I'm getting it posted a few days late, but here are 25 easy ways in November to help encourage an early love of reading in your child.
Nov. 5: Take a counting walk, picking something to count (cars, trees, houses, etc.)
Nov. 6: Turn off the television and play board games together.
Nov. 7: Stack up the pillows inside and read together.
Nov. 8: Sing a favorite song together.
Nov. 9: Draw some shapes and look for those shapes around the house.
Nov. 10: Look through a family album together and talk about the photos.
