Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Language arts (Preschool); Language arts (Kindergarten); Family literacy programs;
During the past decade, much has been written regarding the development of reading and writing of preschool and kindergarten children. While this topic has been investigated since the late 1800s, it is only within the past 10 years that the research has included children as young as 14 months and even younger (Teale and Sulzby, 1989). Leading researchers in the field, such as Holdaway, 1979; Morrow, 1989; Strickland, 1989; Sulzby, 1986, 1989, 1990; Teale, 1986, 1989, have studied early literacy development, as well as those factors which encourage it.
