For preschoolers, literacy is many things, not just reading and writing.
Where is the literacy potential in my home environment?
How can I help my child notice my reading, writing, and math and understand the purpose?
How can I increase the amount of interaction about print, numbers, and stories between my child and me?
You might sit down and think about the ways that you use literacy or could use literacy already in your home. Your list might look like this:

On another page, put a list of things that you could do to increase the print in the environment or the ways that you call your child's attention to it. One easy entry could read: "I can follow all the conversation suggestions on other pages of this website, especially:
Building Concepts, and
Read with Me."
