Recognizing this kind of print is one of the beginning stages of literacy development. The letters, numbers, shapes, and colors found in logos for products and stores such as McDonald’s, Wal-Mart, Coke, and Campbell’s soup all provide opportunities for emerging readers to interact with print and the written word in their own environment. Another great way to do this is by labeling spaces around the house like “Door”, “Window”, “Bathroom”, and “Refrigerator”.
