Literacy Resources for Tertiary Early Childhood Students

There is a concern among early years practitioners that, in a multi-media world, children’s language and listening skills are less well-honed than in the past. Over the last ten years, there’s been copious research to show the soundest foundations for literacy are an active, play-based curriculum, an emphasis on oral learning, and plenty of time for music, movement, song and stories. Today’s children need these experiences more than ever, and practitioners need information about how they relate to language and literacy development, and ideas about how to integrate them into their daily routine. Foundations of Early Literacy provides this valuable information.
