Learning to read happens when children are taught letters and sounds in natural and meaningful way. Gone are the days when children learned the letter A on Monday and did a bunch of ‘A’ worksheets (gasp!), then on Tuesday they learned B… etc. Noticing letters in children’s names, environmental print, and in books make learning stick.
