The lists in this packet help you to think intentionally and broadly about print awareness: what you are doing and what you can do to increase your students’ print awareness.
As a teacher, you provide students many opportunities for print awareness throughout the day, many times indirectly. You model meaningful uses of print and include print throughout your classroom; incorporate it into play and instruction; support students at their individual skill level, scaffolding their learning, giving them encouragement and guidance.
You will know that your students have an awareness of print when they
• Are interested in what printed words say
• Write or attempt to write their own names
• Desire to use print during instructional activities
• Increase in the number of letters they know
• Use print during play
• Learn conventions related to print
