The ABC and Beyond™ programme is based on the most current research on promoting emergent literacy in early childhood classrooms.
It focuses on preparing preschool children to learn to read and write successfully, showing educators different techniques to build language and literacy learning naturally into everyday conversations and activities. It addresses the various prerequisites of literacy, including vocabulary, story comprehension, decontextualized (abstract) language, print knowledge and phonological awareness.
The guidebook is illustrated with over 120 colour photographs, easy-to follow charts and accompanied by detailed, practical examples of how strategies can be successfully applied in real-life contexts.
Contains a wealth of invaluable information on building vocabulary, abstract language skills and increasing story comprehension. There is a strong emphasis on exposing children to the printed word and how print works, as well as learning the alphabet and letter-sound association. By engaging children via motivating literacy activities during the course of the day, early years professionals can build a wide range of crucial emergent literacy skills that are associated with later literacy success.
