Environmental print is the text that is connected to daily living. This text is found all around us on food labels, signs, restaurant names and menus, billboards, logos, newspapers, magazines, and other sources of media.
We will be using our large black board space as an environmental print word wall. Posting familiar words helps build children's confidence as readers and helps them to recognize many initial sound-letter relationships as they immediately read a word.
Today your child brought home a baggie and attached note. Please spend time searching your house for familiar environmental print words that can be sent to school and added to our word wall.
Thank you for your help with this literacy initiative!
