Marta Collier Educational Systems & Services, LLC is committed to use of literature to promote the ability, enjoyment and interest in reading among young children. While children's literature pre-dates the digital world, it is being under-utilized to promote reading in places where children spend substantial time. This is in part because many adults charged with the care and instruction of children lack practical instructional tools to tap into the power of children's literature to meet children where they are and lead them to where the need to go. Dr. Marta's Literacy Learning Guides are instructional tools designed to give adults practical guides for use with quality children's literature. Each literacy guide contains seven activities in lesson plan format. The activities are selected to provide multiple opportunities for children to practice using words, events, themes and places in the selected children's literature within the context of the book as well as their own lives. The literacy learning guides encourage children to use all five senses to understand the words, events and themes in the selected children's literature as they develop attention span, fine motor skills, hand eye coordination etc. as they prepare for more complex tasks.
