Children love to pretend, and dramatic play is the perfect environment for children to practice and apply literacy concepts. Whether they decide to be firefighters, to open a pet store, or to have a tea party, children will increase their vocabulary, communicate with their peers, and learn to recognize environmental print-all important skills for prereaders. Literacy Play is chock-full of creative dramatic play activities that teach important pre-reading skills while bringing children's imaginations to life! Amy Cox has been a supervising teacher in the Melba S. Lehner Children's School at Weber State University for the past nine years. Sherrie West is a mentor teacher for Head Start at the Ogden Area Community Action Agency.
