Emergent Literacy for School Readiness.


  • Delenn Strong


What role does emergent literacy play in a child’s school readiness? This budding skill is essential for children before starting school. Children need a foundation of different learning techniques to learn the materials they will experience in the school setting. School readiness is key to a child’s learning while in education. The goal of this research is to explore the benefits of starting learning early in the home. Interaction with reading and writing prior to the start of school is achieved by learning through researching literature. Research shows that age matters when emergent literacy is most helpful and agrees that the learning should take place in the home. The research also has gaps on topics, such as age, and gender. Research also has gaps on who is the most helpful in teaching emergent literacy in the home. Developing emergent literacy is essential for a child to succeed in school readiness.
