Welcome, this week strategies for supporting children to develop early literacy skills and build a lifelong love of learning. Also, how to talk to children about death and dying, and help them manage grief.
Early literacy skills are a pathway to reading
Repetitive rhymes, silly songs and shared books are not only fun for young children, they also help to develop the early literacy skills necessary for learning to read.

Once upon a time it was believed that reading was as natural as learning to talk, but this was a fairy tale. Learning to read the English language is a complex, learned skill that can be difficult to master and typically requires years of instruction and practice.

The reading journey begins with 'hear first, see later' and the development of literacy starts at birth when the sounds of language are first perceived. Stories told and shared, repeated rhymes and sing-songs are crucial literacy learning activities for babies, toddlers and pre-school children.
Helping children
understand death and cope with grief
How do you help the children in your early childhood service understand death? And how do you help them cope when it touches them personally, either in their family, or because it's directly affected your early childhood community, with the death of an educator or a child?

It's a difficult subject to tackle, but an essential one. Fortunately, there are resources that can help.
