Looking for ways to inspire a love of reading in your little ones? The National Library Board’s Early Read Carnivals offer fun and active ways to encourage children to read. Join them for one of three Early Read Carnivals and see for yourself how interactive activities such as ‘clay modelling’ and ‘word fishing’ can make reading fun for the whole family mama!
The planned activities are recommended for children below the age of 6 and comprise five early literacy practices:
- Play: Fun activities are incorporated to make reading more interactive and help children think symbolically.
- Write: Children are invited to scribble or draw what they see in various books, which helps develop hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills.
- Talk: Storytelling sessions help children learn new words and express themselves.
- Sing: Singing a poem or rhyme increases a children’s awareness of the words and their sensitivity to sound.
- Read: Reading together helps develop vocabulary, comprehension and general knowledge
