Ready or Not, Play or Not: Next Steps for Sociodramatic Play and the Early Literacy Curriculum--A Theoretical Perspective
Bluiett, Tarsha
Reading Improvement, v55 n3 p83-88 2018
Several federal mandates have eradicated developmentally appropriate early literacy practices in primary grade classrooms across the country. Studies show that patterns of oral language use are developed extensively during the preschool years and lay a foundation for literacy development. In recent years, high quality pre-kindergarten classrooms are on the rise; most of these classrooms are bringing play/literacy back to the forefront of early literacy instruction. This article advocates the importance of a play/literacy curriculum in early childhood classrooms.
