Emergent Literacy Development
Emergent literacy skills are the basic building blocks for learning to read and write. Emergent literacy skills begin developing in early infancy and early childhood through participation with adults in meaningful activities involving talking and print.
Consistent evidence exists that there are three primary domains of emergent literacy that are causally related to conventional reading & writing:
- Oral Language
- Phonological Processing
- Print Knowledge
