Helping Families Develop Emergent Literacy Strategies.
Saracho, Olivia N.
International Journal of Early Childhood, v31 n2 p25-36 1999
Using interviews and videotaped observations, this study examined family contributions to their 5-year-olds' literacy development in a 5-month family literacy program developed by their children's teachers. Results suggested that children's literacy can be developed through everyday family experiences and that the richest resource for literacy development is an extensive array of literacy strategies, activities, and materials in different contexts.
