Literacy Checklists

What does "ready to read" or "pre-literacy" look like?  Here are few checklists that identify early literacy skills and practices for librarians and caregivers.  Checklists can be printed/shared online or integrated into storytime as modeling tips.  Use these tools to help identify areas of success and places for improvement.


  1. Checklists for creating a literacy-friendly home, classroom, or family child care from Get Ready to Read!
  2. "How parents can help their preschoolers get ready to read" from the National Institute for Literacy
  3. Early literacy observation checklists for librarians from Saroj Ghoting, Early Childhood Literacy Consultant
