What are the 5 parts of literacy development?

Reading is so much more than just the words. Many children get behind in reading by grade three due to a number of reasons. Here’s how you can set them up for success starting as young as you can.

When you read with your child, focus on these 5 pieces to support their literacy skills:

  1. Background Knowledge - Learn new information

  2. Letter Knowledge - See and know ABCs

  3. Phonological Awareness - Hear and know sounds in words

  4. Print Awareness - Use books

  5. Vocabularies - Use new words and concepts
