Extremely thankful for teachers, this weekend! This weekend’s quote shared by a teacher in the online course I facilitate (Thank you, E.M.!)
“The literacy-rich environment also provides students with opportunities to engage with and see adults interact with print allowing students to build their skills in understanding the conventions, purposes, and functions of print. “Children learn how to attend to language and apply this knowledge to literacy situations by interacting with others who model language functions” (Gunn, Simmons, & Kameenui, 1995, 11).
