I have been working on other more personal things for the past several months, but my TALK postings about Language and Literacy is still a top priority. I am especially focused on early literacy with a special emphasis on K-2 because we are finding far too many children are not being identified as struggling readers during this critical period. Consequently they are not receiving the Tier 1, 2 or 3 services they deserve and need. When children are not given that help in K-2, they are likely to struggle with reading throughout their school life. I will continue to add posts on early language development/skills, because reading begins with oral language!
To add depth to my posts, I am going to review my posting on my ScoopIt board where I have curated many sources for the past 4-5 years. Here is that link:
