Reading Instruction and the Kindergarten Student.
Ediger, Marlow
Kindergarten stresses the readiness factor for learning. This paper first lists 10 things which kindergarten students have experienced in developing readiness for first grade. The paper then discusses 10 things that teachers can do to approach teaching reading in the kindergarten classroom. Finally, it considers additional assistance to aid kindergarten reading achievement and suggests that "ambitious" goals which are unrealistic need to be avoided in teaching reading. The paper concludes that liking and loving reading are salient factors in guiding optimal reading achievement. (NKA)
