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…

D'warte, Jacqueline – Journal of Early Childhood Literacy, 2020
Although unevenly distributed, many Australian classrooms are increasingly diverse and include young people from a wide variety of cultural and linguistic backgrounds, young people who speak many different languages and dialects of English. These diverse classrooms offer rich and exciting teaching and learning opportunities and require innovative…

Tatel-Suatengco, Rosarito; Florida, Jennifer S. – Journal of Early Childhood Literacy, 2020
The growth of literacy in the Philippines is attributed to the formalization of the education system. Learning experiences from formal schooling and the home environmental influence, complement and reinforce the role of the teacher and the parent in promoting literacy. Home literacy practices which are centred on parent-child interaction can…

Hilaski, Danielle – Journal of Early Childhood Literacy, 2020
The American demographic is drastically changing from a largely white, European-American population to one that is extremely diverse. This shift in demographics has impacted on state schools. Students often experience a cultural shock due to a mismatched monocultural, monlinguistic curriculum in schools. This qualitative study explored the way…

Flint, Tori K. – Journal of Early Childhood Literacy, 2020
This eight-month study, conducted in a first-grade classroom in the southwestern United States, analyzed young children's playful responses to literature. It focuses on framing a theory that underpins play as a form of reader response, which I term 'responsive play'. It further aims to answer the overarching research question and the sub-question:…

Dwyer, Julie; Harbaugh, Allen G. – Journal of Early Childhood Literacy, 2020
This study investigates how eight public, centre-based preschool teachers working with low-income children are using different activity settings and content foci to support one aspect of academic language: vocabulary development. Findings indicate that, on average, when teachers engaged children in teacher-led, whole group activities, read-alouds,…

Hadley, Elizabeth Burke; Dickinson, David K. – Journal of Early Childhood Literacy, 2020
The importance of early vocabulary development to later reading comprehension has been well-established. However, there have been a number of criticisms that the assessments typically used to measure oral vocabulary knowledge do not adequately capture the complexity of this construct. This conceptual review works towards a more robust theoretical…

Noguerón-Liu, Silvia; Shimek, Courtney Hokulaniokekai; Bahlmann Bollinger, Chelsey – Journal of Early Childhood Literacy, 2020
The purpose of this study was to explore the ways emergent bilingual first-graders draw on multiple linguistic resources during reading assessments and the participation of their Spanish-dominant parents in those assessments, as children engaged in English and Spanish retelling tasks. Informed by a translanguaging lens, sociopsycholinguistic and…

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.…
