Early Literacy Tips: Manipulatives

Scribbling and drawing are the beginning steps to writing.  Posting your child’s work on the refrigerator or around the house will show them how proud you are of their efforts.  Even when babies play with toys like beads on a wire, it strengthens the finger muscles they will need for future writing.

Watch our Early Literacy web page for monthly updates with other Early Literacy Tips from Miss Susan, our Early Literacy Librarian.  And come to the Olathe Public Library for toys and manipulatives that will help you prepare your child for future success in reading and writing.  We hope to see you soon.
