Emergent Literacy

What is emergent literacy?


It refers to the period of time between birth and the age when a child begins to read and write on his own; it includes a child's interactions with reading, printed materials such as books, and writing utensils. In some contexts, emergent literacy is referred to as helping a child become "ready to read".
