NCDPI- Literacy at Home

The digital children’s reading initiative launched to assist parents and educators in supporting young readers.

The North Carolina Department of Public Instruction’s (DPI) Office of Early Learning has developed and released a new virtual resource, Literacy at Home, to help support North Carolina’s youngest readers. Literacy at Home provides activities specific to each grade level from pre-kindergarten through fifth grade. This online resource provides background knowledge on evidence-based literacy practices, as well as instructional activities for families and caregivers. The Literacy at Home resource also aligns with Superintendent Truitt’s literacy priority outlined in Operation Polaris. A substantial amount of work has been done in the state among partners and with education stakeholders to improve literacy proficiency among students and to equip all Pre-K through Grade 5 teachers, literacy coaches, and administrators with early literacy instructional methods.
