Six Skills by Age Six : Launching Early Literacy at the Library (Paperback) (Anna Foote)
About this item
A child’s exposure to reading before they actually know how to read not only facilitates their ability to learn to read and write, but ultimately makes them more proficient readers and communicators as well. The Six by Six: Ready to Read program identifies the six skills young children need to become readers. Intended for library personnel wishing to craft an early literacy program, this book defines these skills and how they can be used to create activities that will teach young children. The authors include games, songs, suggested books, and other activities that library staff can use in their early literacy programs. The book also shows how library staff can use these activities to tailor these programs to meet the specific needs of their community. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
This one-stop guide to nurturing six core early literacy skills at your library also offers practical tips for sharing these skills with parents, teachers, and other caregivers so they can institute them in playgroups, in school, or at home.
