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'.…

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…

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:…

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…

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…

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.

Compton-Lilly, Catherine; Kim, Jieun; Quast, Erin; Tran, Sarah; Shedrow, Stephanie – Journal of Early Childhood Literacy, 2019
In the past, physical barriers such as geography and distance limited global communication.
