Sofkova Hashemi, Sylvana; Cederlund, Katarina – Journal of Early Childhood Literacy, 2017

Clasen, Line Engel; Jensen de López, Kristine – Journal of Early Childhood Literacy, 2017
Several early literacy programmes have documented their effectiveness in enhancing children's early literacy and language development.

Worthington, Maulfry; van Oers, Bert – Journal of Early Childhood Literacy, 2017
This study builds on recent research into young children's pretend play. Social literacy practices and events in which children engaged were investigated to reveal features of their meaning making. Drawing on Vygotsky's view of the social nature of symbol use and writing, it stresses the significance of cultural and social features of meanings and…

Neumann, Michelle M.; Neumann, David L. – Journal of Early Childhood Literacy, 2017
Young children living in technology-based communities are using touch-screen tablets (e.g. iPads) to engage with the digital world at an early age. The intuitive touch-screen interface, easily downloadable apps (applications) and mobility of tablets drive their increasing popularity with pre-schoolers. This review examines research to date on…

The current study sought to identify the component skills that contribute to preschool children's ability to begin to spell words and write their name. Ninety-five preschool children (mean age = 57 months) completed a…

Three Korean children, whose English reading test scores were comparably lower than their peers' and who showed a tendency to withdraw from class activities or resist texts, participated in a reading tutoring programme in South Korea. By reflecting on the three students' interactions with an English text, the current paper argues that resistant…

Zhang, Qilong – Journal of Early Childhood Literacy, 2017
A sociocultural approach to emergent literacy and growing concerns over the de-emphasis on literacy of the New Zealand early childhood education curriculum "Te Whariki" call for locally situated emergent literacy programmes co-constructed by teachers, parents and children. While teachers' approach to emergent literacy takes centre stage…

Teacher research yields a plethora of insights about creating a meaningful curriculum for children. In this article, we describe the experience of preschool children who participated in Kindergarten Club, a space that afforded them opportunities to shift roles from being preschoolers to being kindergarteners. Kindergarten Club became a catalyst…

Gilkerson, Jill; Richards, Jeffrey A.; Topping, Keith J. – Journal of Early Childhood Literacy, 2017
Early language development predicts later reading competence, but does reading to young children enhance the language interaction between them and their parents? Automatic assessment of language interaction now yields adult word counts, conversational turn counts and child vocalization counts. This study had 98 families return reading activity…

Hackett, Abigail; Somerville, Margaret – Journal of Early Childhood Literacy, 2017
This paper examines the potential of posthumanism to enable a reconceptualisation of young children's literacies from the starting point of movement and sound in the more-than-human world. We propose movement as a communicative practice that always occurs as a more complex entanglement of relations within more-than-human worlds. Through our…

Wohlwend, Karen E.; Peppler, Kylie A.; Keune, Anna; Thompson, Naomi – Journal of Early Childhood Literacy, 2017
Two approaches to materiality (i.e. mediated discourse and agential realism) are compared to explore their usefulness in tracking literacies in action and artefacts produced during a play and design activity in a preschool makerspace. Mediated discourse analysis has relied on linguistic framing and social semiotics to make sense of multimodality.…

Kuby, Candace R; Rucker, Tara Gutshall; Darolia, Laura H. – Journal of Early Childhood Literacy, 2017
This manuscript focuses on agency from a posthumanist stance. For so long, educators' definitions of agency have focused solely on people. As we read more on posthuman ideas of agency, we were also reading Deleuze and Guattari's work on philosophy and concepts. These two bodies of scholarship intra-acted with each other to create newness of ideas…

Bridges-Rhoads, Sarah; Van Cleave, Jessica – Journal of Early Childhood Literacy, 2017
This paper was written in the midst of enquiry--provoked by the question of what happens when we write posthumanism, qualitative enquiry and early literacy together. Rather than offer a stable methodology that is the product of our experimentation, the paper functions as a map, a situated cartography that has multiple access points and is…
