Every Day is a Reading and Writing Day

Spring 2014 Website
Ages: 3 - 5 yrs.
Publisher: Sesame Workshop

Embedded as one of the online parental toolkits on their website, Sesame Workshop's Every Day is a Reading and Writing Day is a resource supporting early childhood literacy with tips, videos and activities for parents and caregivers. In this particular toolkit, we felt the richest resources were the 15 activity screens; they are straightforward, easily implementable and enjoyable for children ages 3 to 5. Less effective, but still reinforcing, were the videos encouraging parents and children to incorporate listening to each other, talking together, and reading and writing as every day activities. Although geared to children from 3 to 5, with typical Sesame Street comprehensiveness, tips are included for introducing "writing" to babies from 0-2. While much of this online toolkit is common sense, there are some very clever suggestions and any parent who discovers even one new tool for helping their children learn will find this website resource worthwhile.
