The KU ELLI Program Guide - Talking, Reading and Writing: Sharing the Journey
The KU ELLI Program Guide
The Guide highlights the benefits of providing meaningful experiences that promote vocabulary development, build linguistic awareness, and engage children in listening to the sounds of the language, thereby developing phonemic awareness. The KU ELLI Guide is also a useful resource that can be referred to when developing a print rich literacy environment. Such an environment offers many opportunities for children to become familiar with books from different genres, acquire book knowledge, participate in story making, engage in story recall, prediction and pretend story reading and fosters interest in letters and writing. Recommended for: This program guide is a valuable resource for early childhood educators working with children aged from 2-5 years, as well as students at TAFE and University who are studying to work with children in the years before school.
