LAPS Activity 2: A Fresh Look (2008)

Children's Language and Literacy Development

The Literacy and Parenting Skills (LAPS) program helps parents improve their own literacy and parenting abilities while at the same time showing them how to foster their children’s literacy development.

This document, an updated version of the original manual, explains how to facilitate LAPS classes. Lessons are arranged around themes like positive discipline, listening skills, and building self-esteem in children.

The manual includes many games, songs and rhymes, as well as suggestions for relevant books. The authors have also included strategies to help children develop oral communication, motor, social and other skills.
