Exploring Young Children's Literacy Development through Play.
Saracho, Olivia N.
Early Child Development and Care, v167 p103-14 Apr 2001
This exploratory study examined effects of literacy- enriched play centers and the emergent literacy of 5-year-old kindergartners. Qualitative analysis indicated that a language or literacy component can be integrated into kindergartners' play activities. Play activities promoted the invented symbols and messages in children's writing. Teachers created a literate environment to promote literacy development. (Author/KB)
