Print Awareness

As young preschoolers grow up, they show keen interest in the world of printed matter, if they are exposed to Print through a range of activities such as shared reading, writing for children, opportunities for free writing etc. Through this exposure they understand quite a few things about the fascinating world of print. They know that what we speak can be written on paper and can be read whenever needed. They understand that in the written form, independent spoken words are separated with a space. They know that one reads Marathi from left to right and from top to bottom. This awareness about Print plays a critical role in becoming literate.
