The research is clear: the ability to read for understanding requires a great deal of knowledge and vocabulary, as well as reading skills. By linking early literacy to content area learning, we can provide children with the purposeful, knowledge-building experiences they need to be successful readers and writers. In this comprehensive and practical resource, early literacy experts Susan Neuman and Kathy Roskos give you the tools to do this. They share five essential early literacy practices--creating a supportive learning environment; shared book reading; songs, rhymes, and word play; developmental writing; and play--and show how and why to apply these in math, science, social studies, and art so children acquire the knowledge and the skills they need for academic success. For use with Grades PreK-K.
