Family involvement is important in school success. Successful early childhood programs strive to involve families in the educational process. Literacy bags help families become involved in the educational process and help families access developmentally appropriate literacy resources. It is both the family interaction and resources provided by the school that aid in the development of literacy skills. This paper contains a review of language development, educational approaches, and developmentally appropriate practices. It also contains resources to begin the implementation of literacy bag use in an early childhood classroom. Five examples of literacy bags with activities are provided.
