Literacy Center Education Network

Play and Learn

 

The Literacy Center Education Network provides trusted resources for Preschool, Kindergarten, and First Grade English Langauge Learners (ELLs) and Dual Language Learners (DLLs).

Our site is designed for use in busy classrooms, computer laboratories, and at home. We offer interactive Play and Learn games and printable activities for parents andd teachers to share with their children.

This year, children in the United States will be required to meet new Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Because these standards require much more from young children, the LiteracyCenter.Net has an ongoing effort to help parents and teachers. For example, if your child needs to meet the CCSS requirment to learn 26 English letters in Kindergarten, you will find both upper and lowercase letters on our webiste. If you are wondering what books support early reading in your home language, you will find reviews and suggestions here.  Our user experience expert will review websites and apps with an eye to finding those that best support the needs of bilingual children. If you are looking for non-commercial activities for  learning frequently used words, you will find fun and entertaining suggestions here.  We are also collecting CCSS resources for teaching ELLs and ELLs with learning disabilities and sharing expertise on Teach English as a Second or Other Language (TESOL).
