    By Susan Conklin Thompson

    Art and literacy experiences can be integrated into the classroom to great effect, and Susan Thompson shows us how.

    By Judith A. Schickedanz & Renee M. Casbergue

    This detailed examination of writing in the preschool years covers the development from scribble to script, from letter strings to real words, and from simple to detailed messages.

The authors share many samples of children’s writing, as well as specific strategies providing support for children’s writing. From the International Reading Association’s Preschool Literacy Collection.
