Filled with practical, everyday activities that build language development and early literacy into your daily schedule. Use circle time, snack time, dramatic play or any other time throughout the day to develop children's language skills. The authors discuss both expressive language (talking), and receptive language (listening), as well as the beginnings of reading and writing. Each cross-curricular activity includes ways to enhance children's vocabulary, questions to help the teacher evaluate the children's progress, an annotated list of books that relate to the activity, and age-appropriate suggestions for writing experiences.
