Literacy Collection

The ‘Learn to Read’ Literacy Collection is an assortment of reading resources intended to help parents and caregivers to explicitly teach reading skills to their children, and then, practice them. The resources in the collection include decodable literacy strips, books & passages, reading games, dry-erase re-usable print-outs, phonics readers and more. As a part of the collection, parents can also complete a free reading assessment with their child to pin-point exactly what literacy skills they have mastered and which ones they need help with. After which, Library staff can recommend a perfectly leveled resource for that family/child. Please note that there are many components to being an effective reader, and this collection focuses on decoding skills (how to read/sound-out words) rather than language comprehension.
