Concepts of print activities focus on how printed language works! It’s our goal to ensure children can pretend-read books from front to back and finger-point read by the end of Pre-K, putting them on the path to literacy! Ready to implement concepts of print activities in your preschool or Pre-K classrooms? Check out some of our favorite resources to spark your imagination!
