Tips & Activities for Developing Preschooler Print Awareness

  • Buy poster-board paper and make "Big Books" with your preschooler. Find pictures in magazines or simply draw pictures together. Ask your preschooler to tell you the story and write one or two sentences on a page. Read the book together.

  • Hold a book upside-down and start reading the book. See if your preschooler corrects you.

  • Play "I Spy" games and look for words in signs and labels.
