The Florida Office of Early Learning is once again partnering with the Florida Department of Education to recognize and celebrate literacy for all children. FDOE has designated Jan. 25-30, 2021, as Celebrate Literacy Week, Florida! This year’s theme is Humanity tells a story: What’s YOUR chapter?
OEL will support the Celebrate Literacy Week theme from an early learning perspective with the focus being My Community and Me! Early child care providers and preschools will incorporate early literacy skills into age-appropriate selfawareness topics related to families and their communities.
Please mark your calendars for the simultaneous reading activity on Wednesday, Jan. 27, at 9 a.m. (EST). Providers will spread the love of literacy in their homes, centers, and schools by reading Ten Tiny Toes by Caroline Jayne Church to infants and toddlers (birth to 3-year-olds) and What I Like About Me! by Allia Zobel-Nola to preschoolers (3 to 5-year-olds)
