This unique sourcebook offers literacy activities and ideas to teach young children more than 72 literacy skills. It covers listening, sound recognition, parts of the book, top to bottom, left to right, letter/sound connections, using picture and context clues, sequencing, measurement, telling time, street addresses, coordinates, money, mouse skills, and keyboarding. Detailed discussions of each include necessary prerequisite skills, the concepts to be mastered, the materials needed, instructional procedures, and extensions to the activities.
