Reading and Writing in EYFS
**How do we teach reading 📖 in EYFS** #LoveOfReading 📖 • Selection of books • Reading strategies – look at the picture, ask predicting questions • Questioning – comprehension • By adding child-made books and adult-scribed stories to the book area and use these for sharing stories with others. • By Creating an environment rich in print where children can learn about words, e.g. using names, signs, posters. • When children can see the text, e.g. using big books, model the language of print, such as letter, word, page, beginning, end, first, last, middle. • Carrying out activities using instructions, such as reading a recipe to make a cake. • Ensure access to stories for all children by using a range of visual cues and story props. For example, story boards, puppets, stuffed animals, etc.
