    By Susan Conklin Thompson

    Art and literacy experiences can be integrated into the classroom to great effect, and Susan Thompson shows us how. Interpreting and creating pictorial representations is an important step on the road to literacy, as is experimenting with combinations of symbols and text. When we value and support children's symbolic expression and communication, children respond and gain confidence.

    By Judith A. Schickedanz, Ren

    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. Describes how adults can identify and build the various strands of knowledge and skills that must come together for young children to understand how print works. 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.
