For student interns, teachers of three-, four-, and five-year-old children, and courses in Language Arts in Early Childhood Education, Reading Methods, and Emergent Literacy
Pre-service and in-service teachers get practical, up-to-date strategies in an easy-to-use, easy-to-understand approach to teaching literacy to three-, four-, and five-year-old students as mandated by the state and national governments.
In this practical resource, teachers and student interns learn the best picture books and activities to use with children, how to use them effectively, and how to ensure that children best benefit from their use. They learn what to expect as young children’s writing emerges from scribbles, to pictures, to real words, and they come to grips with the concept of emergent literacy as it appears in preschool children and evolves into conventional literacy as it is taught in elementary school. The unique approach presents the latest information on early literacy teaching strategies in 50 concise chapters divided into three sections: Children’s Speaking/Listening, Children’s Writing, and Children’s Reading, making specific topics easy to locate. This new edition includes the latest information on working with dual language learners, vocabulary development, and kindergarten reading, as well as practical applications of newly researched findings.
