Scott County Library Children’s Department is excited to kick off the statewide early literacy initiative, 6 by 6!!
What is 6 by 6? This program emphasizes the six skills that parents and caregivers can help children develop before they learn to read, at about the age of 6.
The Six Skills:
The Children’s Department with the help of a Grant from the Scott Community Foundation has put together 6 kits that will be shared for 6 weeks at a time. Each child who attends programming will receive a set of the “6 by 6” cards detailing the 6 skills for parents and caregivers along with a paperback book that goes with each of our kits. In addition, activities and “recipe” cards have been developed for these skills and each child will receive the card/activity that goes with that week’s skill area.
