Chalk Talk: Why Schools Emphasize Early Literacy
Becoming a reader is probably the most important task a child must master in elementary school. There are many key facts about reading to consider because reading is a complex process. Students have to make meanings from the words, from the sentences, and discern an author's intent. They are asked to make and talk about value judgements about their books. It is a daunting task, but if started at home at an early age, children will be prepared to meet the curriculum expectations for elementary literacy.
