Beginning literacy with language: young children learning at home and school
P.H. Brookes Pub. Co., Jun 15, 2001 - Business & Economics - 409 pages
Drawn from research the authors gathered in the Home-School Study of Language and Literacy Development, this enlightening book demonstrates the impact of early interactions on kindergarten language and literacy skills. Readers will enter the homes and schools of over 70 young children to observe their conversations and interactions at ages 3, 4, and 5. Through case studies and transcripts, readers will discover how families talk to children during everyday activities and how teachers support children's literacy development throughout the school day. It's an ideal book for educators, administrators, parents, and anyone involved in shaping young children's early language and literacy skills.
