Literacy Beginnings: A Prekindergarten Handbook

Literacy Beginnings: A Prekindergarten

For prekindergarten children, language and play are the major tools for learning about the world, and they are also the most important tools for early literacy learning. The three- or four-year-old who takes a memo pad and marker around to family members "to take orders" for dinner, like all young children, makes no distinction between play and reading and writing. It all involves curiosity, learning, discovery, and excitement. Watch an overview webinar! In their latest professional book, Gay Su Pinnell and Irene Fountas show you how to tap into young children's excitement to introduce them to the world of literacy in joyful, engaging ways. As with their Continuum of Literacy Learning for grades K-8, they provide detailed descriptions of language and literacy behaviors and understandings for teachers to notice, teach, and support, while offering practical strategies for the prekindergarten classroom. Full of resources like songs, rhymes, and finger plays, Literacy Beginnings also includes 35 ready-to-use lessons to introduce young children to reading and writing. Start reading now!

The Book of Call & Response (First Steps in Music series)

The Book of Call & Response (First Steps in Music

"Whether sung around a campfire, in the classroom, or on a family road trip, call and response songs, in which a leader sings a phrase and a group sings back a reply, are an engaging interactive experience for kids. Historically, the songs in this collection were sung by workers in the field or sailors on ships, helping to pass the time and keep the workers in sync with one another. Kids today will love these classic folk songs because the easy call-and-response style takes no time to learn, letting everyone join in and enjoy these accessible and lively songs."
