Pre-Literacy Activities to Try at Home

In a recent post called Braille for Breakfast on Thomas Marshall Does it All, his mother explores some early literacy activities that can be tried at home, such as touching cold cereal and picking out certain shapes, pieces, or different types of cereal.  This activity can be used to help to develop sorting and matching skills, same/different, concepts of size, shape, texture, counting, and fine motor skills, such as a pincer grasp.  This is a great reminder that tactile exploration can be incorporated into so many daily routines!
