Community engagement

"If we want children to learn about the value of community and connections with others, then we need to consider the example we set and the opportunities that we provide for such learning to occur. Highlighting the connections we have to the community, and making them visible for children, is an important way to do this—involving children wherever possible in such connections makes the experience meaningful in the child’s eyes."

Home - Phonological Awareness

Home - Phonological Awareness | Childcare setting tips | Scoop.it

What is Phonological Awareness?

Awareness of sounds in a languageAwareness of rhymesAwareness that sentences can be broken down into words, syllables, and soundsAbility to talk about, reflect upon, and manipulate soundsUnderstanding the relationship between written and spoken language

Phonological awareness consists of skills that typically develop gradually and sequentially through the late preschool period. They are developed with direct training and exposure.

 

Who benefits from Phonological Awareness instruction?

 

• All children learning to read! (preschool, kindergarten, and first grade)
• Children at risk for reading
- Have less experience and skill using the alphabet
- Due to decreased opportunities and exposure to reading
~ Limited access to books/libraries
~ Different family priorities/expectations of reading
~ Unaware of the benefits of reading to children
• Children with language delays
- Tend to also have reading disorders
• Children with articulation disorders
- Awareness of sounds leads to heightened awareness of correct speech productions
• Children with spelling disorders
- Research shows these students perform poorly on PA tasks
- Helps connect sounds to letters and recognize common spelling units within words

Teacher Tom: Three Questions

Teacher Tom: Three Questions | Childcare setting tips | Scoop.it

"If a teacher rightly has any power at all, it is the power of Now. It isn't the power of hierarchy, of being right, of being in charge. Now is the ultimate power of seizing an opportunity. The children with whom I work already understand this power much more fully than do I; they are, in fact, in a process of un-learning it so that, in the usual turnings of life, newer children can one day re-teach them. Now is the natural habitat of the very young and it is where a teacher must go if he is to be any good at all. That is where the power is."
