Education is a Team Sport Early childhood education is a team sport. It is most successful when parents, teachers, and children play and learn together. Research tells us it is important for children to speak, read, and write in their first language, first. For this reason, the Literacy Center Education Network has designed an integrated learning system that allows parents to teach home language skills before sending their children to school.

Children are successful with decoding when the process used to identify words is fast and nearly effortless or automatic. As noted, the concept of automaticity refers to a student's ability to recognize words rapidly with little attention required to the word's appearance.
