Early Literacy Tips:
Counting books and counting rhymes do many things to help children. They not only help with counting and numbers, they also help with early literacy. The sequence of counting books and rhymes helps children learn sequences skills that develop narrative skills. Children who can tell sequenced rhymes and stories can more easily tell narrative stories.
Recognizing numbers goes hand in hand with recognizing letters and learning letter knowledge.
The rhyming text that often accompanies counting books helps children develop phonological awareness.
So know that when you read counting books or say counting rhymes with your child you are teaching them skills that also build a solid foundation for reading.
