Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Here are more than 100 activities that address literacy while engaging children in movement games. The author describes the benefits of active literacy learning and the connections between music, literacy, and movement." - NAEYC's Teaching Young Children

"...packed with 100 fun and simple movement games that build basic literacy skills and prepare kids for reading success." - San Diego Family Magazine

"Jump into Literacy combines children's love of active games with over 100 lively literacy activities. Written by Rae Pica, these joyful games will engage the whole child in moving and playing as a way to develop literacy skills needed for reading and writing. Each activity is complete with a literacy objective, a materials list, instructions, and extension activities. Most of the activities include suggestions for related music and children's books." - Early Childhood News

Children's Literature - Hazel Buys
This title presents the movement-equals-literacy concept and links literacy to movement and music, proposing that when these three abstract concepts are used in combination, they become concrete. The material is organized into four chapters: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Each chapter presents its material in developmental order, but this is not meant to dictate the sequence that must be followed in using the activities. Children are acknowledged to learn in overlapping ways. Each activity includes a "To Have" list and a "To Do" list. Some activities include additional "More to Do" suggestions. The book concludes with a one-page glossary, an index of literary skills addressed in the four chapters, an index of the children's books included in the chapters, and a general index. This title is part of the "Learning in Leaps and Bounds Series," and its author is a well known children's movement specialist. It is well organized and easy to use and would be a useful addition to any preschool classroom or childcare center. Reviewer: Hazel Buys
