#OCLSReads: 2021 Early Childhood Literacy Calendars

EarlyLiteracyCalendars-01

Now available! Our 2021 Early Learning Calendar, which includes twelve months of learning activities, book lists and nursery rhymes. One side has a calendar with a fun skills-building activity for every day of the month, and the other contains supplementary content like nursery rhymes, early literacy tips, song lyrics and suggested reading material.

Scan the provided QR code to be taken to OCLS’s Kindergarten Readiness Page for more tips and activities for all of your early learners. Many books on the list have been added as digital titles on Overdrive and Hoopla for your convenience.

The Public Library Association (PLA) designed this fun calendar to boost early childhood literacy programming in libraries, schools, and daycare centers. Based on the core practices of Every Child Ready to Read @ Your Library, PLA’s parent-education initiative, the calendar emphasizes activities involving reading, writing, singing, talking, playing, and counting.
