Don't Delay--Come "Write" Away!

Writing, one of the five early literacy practices that help children develop into readers, is important because it makes them aware that printed letters and words have meaning. Even when kids are too little to write actual words, writing is still essential. A scribble on paper isn’t a word, but it certainly represents something and has meaning to the child who drew it. In addition, that scribbling is strengthening hand muscles and developing fine motor skills, which will help with later writing.

For a little writing practice (and a lot of fun), come in and check out our Spring Break Activity Centers. Stop in the children’s room at either library anytime from now through Sunday to make cute crafts and color springtime coloring sheets.
