Andie Cunningham, Starting with Comprehension: Reading Strategies for the Youngest Learners
ISBN: 1571103961 | edition 2005 | PDF | 136 pages | 3 mb
The children in Starting with Comprehension are grappling with school culture for the first time and learning to work with classmates who speak a variety of different languages. These emergent readers learn to present their understanding of what they read through writing, talk, movement, and art. It is never too early to start comprehension instruction. In fact, reading begins with meaning making. Andie Cunningham and Ruth Shagoury designed a reading program for five- and six-year-olds based on this premise.
