    Part A Children in an early childhood education setting need support in their learning and development with regards to literacy knowledge and skills. This is supported in several ways with a key element being a literacy rich environment. This environment will consist of three areas: materials that contain print, materials and tools that produce print and materials that facilitate reading (Fellowes & Oakley, 2014).These print-rich classrooms that have print available throughout the environment that are meaningful and are used throughout the day, enrich children’s learning experiences (Guo, Justice, Kaderavek, & McGinty, 2012). This environment helps to nurture and facilitate three key areas of a child’s literacy development; oral communication; literacy behaviours; and engagement with literacy materials. Oral communication is regarded as a child’s ability to express their feelings, ideas and opinions through oral speech whereas literacy behaviours are skills such as book handling and story comprehension (Monsalve & Correal, 2006; Schickedanz, 2005). Literacy materials are objects or prompts provided by the educator for children to engage with as they develop their literacy behaviours and oral communication with some examples being word processors like pens, paper, crayons and books (“Using Literacy Leaning Centres,”n.d.). Literacy Focused Reading and Writing Centres Reading and writing centres are spaces within an educational setting that contain materials that encourage…

    sample at the beginning of the semester. I engaged a little girl who was drawing and seemed very shy. I tried talking to her and she did not want to talk to me, at all. I eventually asked her what she was drawing and she said that she was drawing a trophy. I asked her about trophies and sports and she opened right up to me. This encounter made me realize that no matter how shy a person is, they have a passion for something and if you find that passion, you will see a completely different side of…

    “Jessica, would you please just sit still for a few minutes?” is something I heard often as a child. I was always on the move, whether I was running, dancing, or twirling around the house. My older brother, however, was the complete opposite; he never was too active. Brandon like to relax, read a book, and just hang out. No, he loved to read books. Most of the pictures from our childhood consist of Brandon sitting next to me, reading way, and me looking bored or trying to escape. Some people…

    The story of my history as a reader was both a positive and enduring experience. My literacy was first shaped by my family, especially my mother and brother, and then by my formal education, especially my first grade teacher. Because of their efforts, I have improved so much throughout the years, both as I grew older and as I learn more aspects of my own personality. From my earliest years, reading was an essential part of my life. My mother and my older brother loved to read. One memory of…

    Second grade discouraged me from giving reading and writing a chance. My peers teased me and humiliated me when I read aloud. If I mispronounced a word my classmates would start laughing and whispering, “she can’t read.” This set my attitude toward reading and writing. Every time Mrs. Ellis, my second grade teacher, would call on for volunteers to read a paragraph, I hoped she wouldn’t call my name. As third grade came around I expected it to be another school year I would dread. Mrs. Perna…
