FACTORS PROMOTING EARLY LITERACY DEVELOPMENT IN CHILDREN Factors Promoting Early Literacy Development in Children Britani Gayle Moneague College-Port Maria Campus In partial fulfillment of the requirements for LA100PR Mr. N Nelson October 10, 2012 It is imperative that a child’s literacy development begins at an early age. Literacy development is the growth of an individual’s writing and reading skills. There are many factors erected to implement early literacy development in children. Some of these include phonological awareness, print motivation and Narrative skills. The process of developing early literacy in children would not be possible without phonological awareness.

AED 202 Week 4 Assignment Information Processing Theory Assignment: Information Processing Theory Compose a 1,400- to 1,700-word paper analyzing the information processing theory.

Perhaps the most famous of the basal readers was a series published by the Scott Foresman Company, called Dick and Jane; whose readers stared two children of the same name. Readers such as Dick and Jane used a whole word/language method for reading instruction, also known as the “look-say” method. The whole-language theory embraces the approach that learning the two components of English literacy, reading and writing, are equivalent to learning to speak English and should be a natural, unconscious progression best cultivated by formless immersion. In an environment rich in simple printed texts and in reading aloud, young children make an connective jump from recognizing the letters of the alphabet to being able to read words. Whole world theorists protest unfamiliar words can be “skipped, guessed at, or picked up from context” (Lemann, 1997).
BALANCED LITERACY PAPER A balanced literacy program includes aspects of literature-based instruction as well as phonics. Linda Chen and Eugenia Mora-Flores (2006) say that this approach “recognizes the complexities of the act of learning to read and the need to utilize multiple approaches because children learn differently.” There is no one-size-fit all strategy to teach children how to read and write, instead we need to find out the individual needs of each student and give them several strategies to work with. It is our job as educators to provide our children with meaningful opportunities for reading and writing. Before laying out an instruction outline, we need to define our goal. Every year teachers need to

KEEP emphasises that secure relationships are valuable for effective learning in children. The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) include forming secure relationships and learning through play as key elements. In my setting I adopt evidence-based practice: by building on skills gained from personal experiences both from childhood and from bringing up three children of my own; by undertaking relevant training and by sharing information with colleagues. Evidence-based practice helps support positive outcomes for children in many ways including: to ask questions about injuries that can’t be explained satisfactorily (Baby P enquiry); the value of early learning through ‘guided play’ (EPPE project) and reflective practice and self-evaluation being important (SPEEL
