When it comes to major milestones in a child’s development, there are no hard deadlines. Parents know that each individual child develops on their own timeline and that is perfectly normal. We all begin our literacy journeys in infancy when we listen to the language from those around us and later begin applying those sounds to images and symbols. Check out the five different stages of literacy development and explore a few of the 230+ literacy games that the Lingokids app has to offer! 


5 Stages of Literacy Development 

1. Emergent Literacy

  • Answering questions like, “Where’s the cow?” or “What sounds does the cat make?” 


2. Alphabetic Fluency
