Get Ready with Words on WCCB's Wilson's World

Get Ready with Words educators appeared on WCCB's Wilson's World in late October to raise awareness about building vocabulary in the very young. 

The first 2000 days are critical learning days for children 18 months to 5 years old. Children who don't get an early grasp of vocabulary lag far behind their counterparts who learn more words.

Get Ready with Words helps make it easy for parents and caregivers to find and share "Words of the Week" and activities sure to spark learning.

By visiting www.getreadywithwords.org, parents and caregivers will find "Words of the Week" along with activities inspired by literacy, science and the arts. "Words of the Week" will coincide with the school year, ending in the spring to make way for special summer programs.
