The River Forest Public Library is committed to early literacy and helping the children in the community develop a lifelong love of books and reading. Each month, we plan to bring you a new tip to help you build your kiddo’s early literacy skills. Check out the Early Literacy Tip of the Month for June:
The “Alphabet Song” is a favorite for many families. This is a popular way for kids to learn the names of letters. However those pesky letters L, M, N, O, and P are often morphed into one fantastical letter–the elemenohpea. A great way to help your child (and you) distinguish between each of these letters is to sing the “Alphabet Song” to a new tune. Try to sing the ABCs to “Mary Had A Little Lamb”, “Frère Jacques” or another favorite. It’s a little tough at first, but it’s a fun way to distinguish between L, M, N, O and P.
