The building blocks of reading and writing

From several decades of research, we have learned a lot about how children learn to read and write. This research tells us that to become skilled and confident readers over time, young children need lots of opportunities to:

• build spoken language by talking and listening

• learn about print and books

• learn about the sounds of spoken language (this is called phonological awareness)

• learn about the letters of the alphabet

• listen to books read aloud
