Overview


Gretchen Owocki's Literate Days: Reading and Writing with Preschool and Primary Children is a multimedia curriculum resource for preschool, kindergarten, and first-grade teachers looking to enrich and broaden their literacy-related instructional practices. Framed by research notes and kidwatching forms, lessons present ideas for enhancing existing teaching practices (such as whole-group read-aloud and circle time) and for extending the quality of students' literacy experiences in times that are not typically considered “instructional” (such as independent reading and play). Ample research evidence shows that when teachers accomplish the types of teaching described in this resource, children's achievement soars - and their lives as literate individuals flourish
