Word Headquarters

Word Headquarters is a busy pretend global communications company that highlights literacy as the key to a child’s academic and lifelong success. Children can role play as employees who are discovering the building blocks of literacy and creating sentences, stories, songs and other forms of self expression. Exhibit messages guide adults about ways to help develop a child’s print awareness, alphabet knowledge, phonetic and phonological awareness, vocabulary, narrative skills, recognition of genres and reading comprehension.
