So Much More than the ABCs The Early Phases of Reading and Writing

Taal: Engels
So Much More than the ABCs


Promoting children's desire to read and write is as important as helping children develop the necessary understandings and skills essential for learning how to read and write. Without motivation, children will read and write relatively little and only what and when they must. This book addresses: 1. What children need to learn in these early years 2. The strategies teachers can use to help children acquire these foundations 3. The features of emergent literacy and language understandings and skills 4. How to design the physical environment in early childhood classrooms, preschools and pre-K programs to support language and literacy learning Teachers and families can use this book to support young children develop the knowledge, and skills needed for later success in learning to read and write.


So Much More Than the ABCs is a must-read for parents and teachers of preschoolers. This outstanding book is based on research and the authors' lifetime experiences devoted to the study of early literacy. --Lesley Mandel Morrow, Professor of Literacy, Rutgers University Drs. Schickedanz and Collins' text offers explicit guidance for teaching children not only decoding skills but also interesting strategies for teaching children how to interact with both narrative and expository text. A special feature is the chapter about reading with infants and toddlers, which is critically important for both parents and caregivers. --Billie J. Enz, Emeritus Professor, Arizona State University So Much More than the ABCs: The Early Phases of Reading and Writing is a bedrock foundational guide for anyone involved in the literacy development of young children . . . . Chapters focus on what children need to learn in the early stages of life. . ., strategies that teachers can use to communicate basic literacy, the aspects and features of understanding language, and how to design a classroom environment to promote language development and literacy. Color photographs enhance this sensible and accessible guide. --The Education Shelf, The Midwest Book Review This is a masterful must-read for anyone interested in the literacy development of young children. Research on language, reading, writing, and motivation is woven seamlessly together with precise instructional guidance. For teachers, this book offers a treasure trove of practical advice; for parents, literacy coaches, and university faculty, it provides a broad, accurate view of early literacy development and pedagogy. --David K. Dickinson, Professor, Vanderbilt University In their new edition, Schickedanz and Collins have continued the heart of their argument from the first edition of More than the ABCs: the foundations of literacy laid down during the early years involve considerably more than merely learning the alphabet and acquiring the alphabetic principle. --Lea M. McGee, Marie Clay Chair of Reading Recovery and Early Literacy, The Ohio State University
