Until recently, literacy was considered as a skill to read and write when children were ‘prepared’ to learn. However, the term ‘literacy’ gradually emerged as the ability or a skill associated in the early years when young babies hear sounds, respond to adults, and watch stories on TV or other devices. In fact, listening to sounds, music, drawing marks on a surface, and listening to music is also associated with literacy skills. Numeracy, on the other hand, refers to ability to perform simple or difficult mathematical operations using numbers such as addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
Can literacy and numeracy be developed at an early age?
The good news is that these key skills can be developed during early childhood using engaging tactics such as singing number rhymes, fitting boxes into one another as per their size and measurement. So, now let’s address the pertinent question: why literacy and numeracy are important in early childhood.
Here are some facts to support the claim!
Do you know children who don’t read, write or learn to communicate at an early age tend to leave school early? Not just this, they have poor emotional and physical health and end up in low-skilled jobs. Other than that, difficulty or delay in literacy results in social consequences such as drug or alcohol abuse and puts the societal development in reverse gear. Therefore, all these factors stress upon the need for developing such skills at an early age if we are looking for a better society with responsible citizens.
