Building Language for Literacy
is a research-based program that develops children's oral language and early literacy skills. Independent research shows that this program significantly increases vocabulary, language, and letter and word identification skills for English- and Spanish-speaking children!
The unique structure for Building Language for Literacy centers around "Places" in the community benefiting both teachers and children.
- Fits into teachers' existing curriculum
- Builds on children's prior experiences
- Fosters multi-cultural awareness and understandings
- Connects school to home and encourages parent involvement
Choose the units that match your current topics and themes - or those that are children's favorite places to visit!
The Spanish Theme Add-On packs are collections of books in Spanish related to the concepts discussed in each corresponding Place Unit. Used in conjunction with the Place Units, the Spanish Theme Add-On packs build new and reinforce existing vocabulary as well as deepen comprehension. They also can be a great addition to your classroom lending library enabling families where Spanish is spoken to discuss topics learned in the classroom at home.
