Hi gang,


I feel like someone may have mentioned this before.  If you haven’t already seen the Practice Guides from the Center for Early Literacy Learning (CELL), I highly recommend you take a moment to check them out:


Parent Guides: http://www.earlyliteracylearning.org/pgparents.php

Practitioner Guides: http://www.earlyliteracylearning.org/pgpracts.php

Adaption Guides: http://www.earlyliteracylearning.org/pg_tier2.php


These are simply the best early literacy information sheets I have ever seen.  They describe early literacy practices in easily understood language.  They give ideas for how to do the practice and describe how you can tell if the practice worked.  Best of all, they give real life examples of the practices at work. 


If you work with families and like to share quick ideas for building language and literacy, these guides are for you!!


Best wishes,
