Transcript of Literacy Links Presentation

Book by: Laura Robb
Presentation by: Nicole Guild Literacy Links Presentation The road to developing literacy experiences for all students. The bottom line Teachers and school personal need to provide students in preschool, kindergarten, and 1st grade with customized literacy experiences that they may have missed in the home environment such as read alouds, conversations about a variety of educational topics, and early writing experiences. According to Robb, a balanced literacy program includes: Read-Alouds, Shared Reading, Interactive Read-Alouds, Interactive Writing, Choral Reading, Independent Reading, and Independent Writing. All of these experiences must be weaved into a meaningful experience such as a topic of study in a preschool classroom. Building a Early Literacy Progam Spend time during the first month of school creating a trusting environment! Make sure students know that you care about them and value them! Creating a caring classroom community is
the backbone to all success! * Keep track of which books students enjoy and want to read over and over. Respect wishes of students not to reread a book
* Keep track of concepts of print skills that you have taught and students have displayed during the reading.
* Keep track of reading strategies modeled and students' responses to these strategies. Keep data on student learning during the family storybook reading and gradually increase the number of skills taught - It is not the program that makes children into good readers and writers, it is the experiences the teacher provides.
- Children's lives need to be filled with a variety of literacy experiences that are guided by a teacher that is assessing their needs and responding in real time. This may mean thinking

about traditional
curriculum, grade levels,
student ratios
in the classroom,
staff needed in
the classroom. Providing the Family Storybook reading experience is crucial for those who lack
pre-reading experiences according to Robb Small groups of students gather around an adult to share stories of varied genres. Adults talk about the book as they read, and praise students' efforts to talk about and make meaning of the story. These experiences are repeated several times per day through out the school year and during the summer school period. Again think
the box! Don't

modeling! Incorporating Early Writing Experiences - Children should be allowed and encouraged to write at the very beginning of the school year- not after memorizing all the letters of the alphabet.
- Teach children about writing by providing lots of writing experiences and modeling.
- Make writing part of the everyday experience at school
- Be flexible on what topics children write about- let them write about what sparks their interests!
- Follow the steps written about "In Breaking the Code" while conducting writing workshops. Provide children time to be kids! - Give children time to explore reading and writing through play!
-Make time for drama, art, imagination, and constructing their own meaning of the world!
- Follow good early childhood practice for setting up centers and conducting the choice time.
- This is how early childhood students learn! Get Parents Involved! A little participation goes a long way for the child!
- Send notes home
- Telephone calls
- Get togethers for morning coffee
- Books to read at home on the weekend
- Journal to write in with the family Reflections and Applications! - Use common sense when teaching young children.
- Don't get stuck following a rigid timeline as to what to teach and when; be responsive to students' needs.
- Provide students with the early literacy experiences that may not have occurred at home; such as reading and talking about stories, going to places in communities, and having rich conversations/writing experiences about a variety of topics that interest the child.
- I will be incorporating more of the family storybook readings and writers workshops into my preschool classroom.
