Singing develops language skills. Slows down language so children can hear the different sounds in words. Helps children learn new words and information.


Reading together develops vocabulary and comprehension, nurtures a love for reading, and motivates children to want to learn to read.


Play is one of the best ways for children to learn language and literacy skills. They learn about language through playing as the activities help them put thoughts into words and talk about what they are doing.
