    From the very beginning of a child's life, effective listening includes becoming aware, focusing, selecting cues from the environment, and filtering out distractions. And in the preschool years, children are ready to learn a lot more about becoming good listeners. Yet very few teachers have had specific preparation for actually teaching children how to listen.

    By Jennifer Birckmayer, Anne Stonehouse, & Anne Kennedy

    The ability to use language (speak, read, write) is not something that children suddenly or automatically develop. It is rather a culmination of experiences with language that begin at birth. Sharing stories (oral storytelling, books) and “story experiences” (conversations, songs, poems, rhymes) with infants and toddlers is critical to building their emergent literacy skills. At the same time, it expands their experience and understanding of the world and also prompts positive interactions with adults and other children, fostering social development.

    By Judith A. Schickedanz, Ren

    This detailed examination of writing in the preschool years covers the development from scribble to script, from letter strings to real words, and from simple to detailed messages.

The authors share many samples of children?s writing, as well as specific strategies providing support for children?s writing. From the International Reading Association?s Preschool Literacy Collection.
