      Should always focus on meaning/comprehension
      Might focus on word study/decoding/vocabulary, writing style, content (science, social studies).
      Video (author study, focus on meaning, author’s choice in writing, turn and talk)

    • How does literacy develop?
      “Reading readiness” … there are certain skills that kids need to develop before they can learn to read and write.
      Emergent Literacy: Literacy develops through a variety of experiences with reading and writing, beginning at birth.
    • Mira
    • Two year old Taylor sees a McDonalds coffee cup and says,
      “Daddy, I want some french fries.”
      Three year old Noah points to the writing on his lunchbox (his name is written on it) and says,
      “This says, my lunchbox.”
    • By the time kids enter school, they usually have some idea of how written language is used in their worlds and they are beginning to make discoveries about print concepts.
