Description:

Based on strong understandings of developmentally appropriate practice, the authors have created and explained a continuum designed to assess what very young children know about oral language, drawing, and writing. This well-researched and easy-to-use assessment tool helps teachers determine powerful next literacy steps and instruction for their young students. Many writing, drawing, construction examples, and vignettes of conversations between teachers and children show what best practices look and sound like in instructional settings for 3- to 6-year-old learners. Selected visuals and data-gathering forms will help educators in early literacy settings get the most out of developmentally appropriate instruction. From Richard Owen Publishers.
