Concepts of Print?
ABC's of Literacy
A child who has knows the concepts of print will have a basic understanding of how books and print work.
Concepts of print can be broken down into two parts- book awareness and print awareness.
What is Book Awareness?
Your child has book awareness when he or she knows how to hold a book when they are reading and the parts of a book.
What is Print Awareness?
Your child has print awareness when he or she understands that the print in the book is what we read and it has meaning.
A child with print awareness understands that we read from left to right and from top to bottom too.
