Foundations of Literacy 3rd Edition

Front Cover
Bloomsbury Academic, Sep 20, 2008 - Education - 136 pages
Levels of literacy in our children are under close scrutiny, and in this busy digital age it is more important than ever to lay the foundation skills for children to become literate adults.

Written by literacy specialist Sue Palmer and early years consultant Ros Bailey, the third edition of this bestselling book draws on the advice and experience of many professionals involved with children aged 3 to 6, including speech and language therapists, literacy and music specialists, early years advisers, developmental psychologists and - above all - teachers from around the UK and Europe.

Foundations of Literacy provides fun activities designed to develop the skills, concepts and knowledge that underpin literacy. There are clear explanations of the latest research and theory, and the book also provides practical advice on helping children transfer learning into their own, child-initiated activities, to build a genuine and solid foundation for literacy.
