Literacy for all young learners
Early childhood classrooms are becoming more and more diverse. Dual languages and a wide range of reading abilities require that teachers have the resources to reach all learners in their classrooms. In Literacy for All Young Learners, Mary Jalongo, PhD, offers 65 strategies to support literacy learning with children from preschool through the third grade. With specific suggestions for ELL students, Jalongo includes recommendations for hundreds of great children's books, websites, and apps to make teaching easier. Each strategy is designed to be simple to use with all of the children in your classroom-from the not-yet-readers to the fluent readers-and each strategy is tied to the Common Core State Standards for kindergarten through third grade. Downloadable digital content includes sample parent letters in English and Spanish, extra book-based activities, and technology supports.
