Open Access Graduate Research Paper
The purpose of this study is to explore the utilization of play activity in a kindergarten classroom to nurture children's emerging literacy. First, a review of professional literature that supports such an instructional development project will be presented. Then, the implementation of a learning environment that integrates reading and writing with play experiences in literature-based thematic units will be described. In this project, the writer will extend play opportunities supported by literature experiences and related language activities.
