Zarina, Sandra
Discourse and Communication for Sustainable Education, v1 n1 p93-108 Jan 2010
In the context of compulsory education for 5-6 year-old children, the question about reading acquisition is one of fundamental concerns for both pre-school teachers and parents. This article examines the methods of reading acquisition frequently applied in preschool, discusses the situation and teachers' view of reading acquisition in pre-school in Latvia and provides suggestions for reading literacy development of 5-6 years old children based on the keystones of sustainable development. The article is a contribution in the construction of a theoretically grounded and sustainable model of reading acquisition for 5-6 year-old children meeting global educational challenges and Latvian local needs.
