Family Literacy

Are you building your home library?

Wild Plum Center operates on the belief that it is of the utmost importance to expose your children to the wonderful world of books and reading. Throughout the school year, we will be promoting family literacy. Each classroom will host Family Reading Sessions along with a family activity. Each Wild Plum Center family will then be given a book for your home libraries.

Our goal is that you will establish consistent reading habits with your children, set aside time to visit the public library and read daily with your children. How do you get started? Designate a shelf for your children's books and refer to it as his/her library. Visit it frequently and encourage your child to pick their favorite story for you to read. Let them tell the story back to you. Ask them specific questions about the story. Then, pick up another book. The earlier you begin to read to your child, the better. When reading patterns are established at an early age, children will continue to read throughout their adult life.

It's never too late to start!
