Here’s the “fridge magnet” I created to give to parents to remind them of the essentials for developing early literacy in their children.

It was created in Publisher and printed on card stock. I stuck a magnet strip on the back (the kind you buy in a roll at a craft department).

It also makes an easy visual for talking to any adult about early literacy. Non-English speaking parents and low-literacy parents are also a great audience. It is very reassuring and encouraging to them to learn that there ARE things they can do to help their children be ready for learning to read and write.

Feel free to use, giving credit as able and appropriate (a referral to the blog is a good credit giving method :-)).
