Resources for Supporting Literacy Development (Birth - 4)
There are many ways to support literacy development beginning at birth. Looking at books with your child every day is one of the most important things you can do for her/his future. Sharing books together strengthens your child's foundation for learning.
Academic standards tell us what students should know and be able to do in the classroom. The Wisconsin Standards for English Language Arts apply to students in kindergarten through twelfth grade. The Wisconsin Model Early Learning Standards apply to children from birth through age 5. Please review this DPI alignment report provides information on the connections between Wisconsin's Standards for English Language Arts and the Model Early Learning Standards
