do projects that begin to incorporate writing. one of my favorite projects to do with young children is making a map. take a large piece of paper and use cut out shapes and crayons to designate your home and the roads and places around you. This is a good project to help create a vision of spacial relations and labels will help promote literacy. :) However I do believe that children will begin to learn letters, reading, and writing when they are ready- one day it will just be there as long as there is support and access to the information.
