Add environmental print to your child’s construction dramatic play with these free road sign printables! We absolutely adore our traffic signs for play in our block center, and this is a fabulous way to get kids motivated to explore reading.
Environmental print is a very powerful tool in supporting emergent literacy skills. Through logos and signs children are exposed to the idea that that writing serves a purpose. Because of this children typically read environmental print first. As their understanding of print and phonetic skills necessary for reading increases, they gradually begin to read words presented separately from the logo.
Environmental print is a great way to help kids see themselves as readers!
