Synopsis:

Gretchen Owocki lets other teachers in on one of the best-kept secrets of early childhood education: play is a virtual goldmine for facilitating literacy learning. When children play in a purposefully designed, literacy-rich environment, teachers can discover and capitalize on some truly important, highly teachable moments.

Literacy Through Play is a resource for preschool and primary teachers who are looking for proven methods for preparing young children to become confident and flexible readers and writers. Owocki begins the book by establishing the theoretical rationale for the importance of play in literacy development, then outlines what teachers can do to set up a developmentally appropriate environment. She takes us inside two classrooms that use play in smart ways, offering proven ideas for:developing the play environment

  • teaching literacy through play
  • assessing children's literacy knowledge as they play
  • implementing developmentally appropriate practices
  • collaborating with families.If the current political firestorm over reading, phonics, and spelling has caused you to question whether children can develop the foundation for conventional reading, writing, and spelling in a developmentally appropriate classroom, this book will assuage your concerns. If the "back to basics" movement has led you to disbelieve these classrooms are teaching the "basics," this book will not only confirm that they are, it will also give you useable ideas for teaching them in developmentally appropriate ways.

  • About the Author: Gretchen Owocki powerfully demonstrates the importance of bringing meaningful instruction to not only traditional reading-instruction topics like comprehension, but also to contemporary issues such as Common Core and RTI. In the bestselling titles The Common Core Writing Book, 6-8; The Common Core Reading Book, 6-8; The Common Core Lesson Book, K-5; The Common Core Writing Book, K-5; and The RTI Daily Planning Book, she masterfully breaks down instructional issues and strategies into manageable chunks that help teachers differentiate instruction, meet curricular goals, and improve as practitioners. For more than 15 years, she has helped teachers find researched-based practices that improve learning by letting students experience curriculum as part of their own development. In other Heinemann titles such as Comprehension; Make Way for Literacy; and Time for Literacy Centers, she shares teaching that engages students through authentic, meaningful tasks and challenges them to grow as readers and writers. A professor at Saginaw Valley State University, Gretchen is a Heinemann Professional Development Services provider. » Read Gretchen's article "Setting a Course to Maximize the Potential of CCSS" in the Heinemann PD Journal.
