Kuby, Candace R.; Rucker, Tara Gutshall – Journal of Early Childhood Literacy, 2020
In response to the guest editors' call to attend to literacy and language as bodily practices and to (re)think social inequality in young children's literacies, we read a couple of publications by Rosi Braidotti, Maggie MacLure, Nathan Snaza, Sarah Truman and Karin Murris (and others) in relation to a personal narrative gameboard coming to be in a…

Dernikos, Bessie P. – Journal of Early Childhood Literacy, 2020
Within this article, I attend to the slippages among sound, silence, noise, voice and ir/rationality to map out the ways in which white supremacist forces subtly moved with/in a primary classroom (NYC), through a host of bodies and sounds, to reinforce processes of affective assimilation -- or demands for first graders to 'feel white'.…

Burnett, Cathy; Merchant, Guy; Neumann, Michelle M. – Journal of Early Childhood Literacy, 2020
This article uses a sociomaterial perspective to explore how deficit views of young children's language and literacy are sustained and can be challenged. Foregrounding the notion of multiplicity, it considers how diverse sociomaterial relations work to uphold particular kinds of practice and particular arrangements of bodies and things over…

MacRae, Christina – Journal of Early Childhood Literacy, 2020
This paper reflects on a slow-motion video clip of the hands of three young children as they play with toys in the sand tray. It foregrounds sand and toys that are handled, as well as hands that grasp and relinquish things. Through this movement of hands that tug and pull at things, it explores how things animate bodies, and how this produces the…

Jokinen, Päivi; Murris, Karin – Journal of Early Childhood Literacy, 2020
This paper explores an inhuman reading of 'hands' with/in visual images of a Finnish literacy lesson. Inspired by Karen Barad's agential realism and the ontological turn, we disrupt a metaphysics of presence, the temporality of progress and binary logic, to reconfigure the child in literacy practices as a sympoietic phenomenon, always already…

Johnson Thiel, Jaye – Journal of Early Childhood Literacy, 2020
This article presents a data story that illustrates unruly placemaking from an event that unfolded during a six-year research enquiry exploring the out-of-school literacies of young people in an informal neighbourhood making space. Specifically, I analyse the happenings between a four-year-old boy and a red marker through theories of critical…

Korat, Ofra; Falk, Yael – Journal of Early Childhood Literacy, 2019
We examined whether eBooks for children (aged 3 to 8) available on the market can serve as a good support for language and literacy. This follows studies published 10 years ago, which showed that children's e-books are usually overloaded with multimedia effects that distract children from the storyline, and from language and literacy learning.…

Moffatt, Lyndsay; Heydon, Rachel; Iannacci, Luigi – Journal of Early Childhood Literacy, 2019
Reading aloud to children is a ubiquitous practice in early childhood settings. While there are many recommendations for how educators should conduct these experiences, little research in the past decade has examined how read-alouds are actually accomplished. Using anthropological and sociological theories of learning, literacy and research, our…

Hong, Huili – Journal of Early Childhood Literacy, 2019
This article provides a unique lens for understanding young children's poetry writing. It focuses on defamiliarization as a cultural tool and practice to engage students' imagination, playfulness, creativity and aesthetic experience into their poetry writing and to experience the world differently and aesthetically. The research aims of this…

Zadunaisky Ehrlich, Sara – Journal of Early Childhood Literacy, 2019
Paradigmatic literacy features refer to ways of thinking and using language associated with academic-scientific discourse or written language. They are intimately bound up with education and appear in their emergent forms, mainly in conversations with adult partners. The present qualitative study investigates whether, and in which ways,…

Duggins, Shaunté; Acosta, Melanie M. – Journal of Early Childhood Literacy, 2019
Within the last decade, two large reading reform efforts have directed state and local state school reading instruction, the Reading First Initiative (2002) and the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts (2010). These initiatives have heavily shaped literacy teaching and learning with a focus on disparity reduction in literacy…

Kuchirko, Yana – Journal of Early Childhood Literacy, 2019
The word gap, or the language gap, can be traced back to Hart and Risley's 1995 seminal work on language practices in high- and low-income families, and it is one of the most widely cited explanations for why children from low-income, minority contexts underperform academically in contrast to their white, middle-income counterparts. Despite its…

Rusu, Corina; Wallace, Richard 'Dickie'; Coman, Madalina; Costea, Veronica; Sidor, Alexandra; Pop, Claudia; Navsaria, Dipesh – Journal of Early Childhood Literacy, 2019
Pre-reading and early childhood literacy skills are important for brain development and fundamental to a child's long-term cognitive and social well-being. As such, the fostering of these skills is an important preventive health measure. Family physicians can play key roles in encouraging parents to routinely read with their children. However, in…

Erickson, Joy D.; Fornauf, Beth – Journal of Early Childhood Literacy, 2019
Autonomous motivation has long been linked to reading achievement in older students and recently has received attention for the role it plays in the achievement of younger children. Given America's nearly nationwide adoption of the Common Core State Standards (which emphasize skill acquisition), concern over whether and how reading motivation is…
