What is early literacy?
Early literacy are skills that children need before they start to learn to read and write. The stronger their early literacy skills, the easier it will be to learn reading and writing in the classroom.
"Early literacy development is vital to later academic success. Children with poor reading skills are more likely to repeat a grade, which too often sets the stage for a pattern of failure in school. Children not reading proficiently at grade 3 are four times more likely to drop out of high school." -Urban Child Institute
