Learning to read is a cornerstone of children’s growth, a process that shapes their cognitive development and instills valuable skills, ranging from language acquisition to critical thinking.

Many early learning programs are using the body of literature on the science of reading to help improve children’s literacy rates. As a result, early learning programs that use Teaching Strategies solutions may be looking for ways to articulate how our tools will help them reach their literacy goals.

Created with those programs in mind, this alignment 

  • identifies the five essential components of literacy learning;
  • describes how The Creative Curriculum for Preschool, GOLD, and ReadyRosie align to those components; and
  • provides resources and effective strategies to help programs reach their literacy goals.
