Play and language are critical early literacy learning tools for the prekindergarten child. Through play and language, they learn about their world and about themselves. Like all emergent readers and writers, children make no distinction between play and literacy—both involve curiosity, excitement, learning, and discovery.
Literacy Beginnings, 3rd Edition is full of practical resources like:
• Children’s songs, rhymes, and poems,
• Theme-based text sets and book lists,
• Inquiry projects,
• and thirty-five simple lessons that support children in their discovery and exploration of language, reading, and writing.
This comprehensive volume, now with refreshed content, also includes the prekindergarten continuum, which describes the trajectory of literacy learning and development of competencies for these young, emerging readers and writers.
