Overview

Help the children in your school or district become successful early readers with the second edition of this field-tested, activity-based curriculum, an effective way to supplement children's instruction without giving up current language arts programming. This book gives teachers more than 60 culturally sensitive, developmentally appropriate activities that were tested for 10 years under research and practical conditions. Activities are organized into three sections emphasizing key elements of reading success: print awareness, metalinguistic skills, and oral language skills. Modifications are included for children with disabilities, and the early literacy activities for children and parents help strengthen the home–school literacy link.

Revised in response to ongoing field testing and research, the new edition of this popular activity book retains the first edition's focus on preacademic language and literacy skills and gives teachers practical updates and timely new material. Teachers will get

  • a new, two-part literacy assessment

  • a sample record sheet for tracking children's progress

  • 11 new activities

  • more explicit teaching instructions

  • helpful Tips for Teachers

  • updated research

With the fun, proven activities in this book, kindergarten teachers will equip children with the emergent literacy skills they'll need to succeed in school.
