Literacy forms its roots in early language exposure. Children become better readers when they grasp the powers of oral language—to entertain, to be understood, and to convey thoughts and ideas—at an early age. Strong oral-language skills in preschool students often translate into impressive literacy skills later on.
The authors of The Emerging Language and Literacy Curriculum (ELLC) have used the well-established link between oral language and literacy to create a comprehensive program for pre-readers, one that lays the groundwork for success in elementary school and beyond. Each of the 22 storybook themes is a distinct, easy-to-teach unit that reflects years of research and practical classroom experience in making language development and learning fun for the child and teacher.
Among the features of ELLC:
• Direct teaching, small-group instruction, and 11 Learning Center activities that encourage children to develop and enhance language abilities and social skills through discussion and application
• An emphasis on letter-sound correspondence and phonological awareness skills—proven to be the building blocks for literacy
• Play-based activities that provide developmentally appropriate learning for all preschoolers
