Teach Smarter: Literacy Strategies for Early Childhood Teachers (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Most early childhood education teachers struggle with teaching literacy, simply because they haven't been exposed to any methods outside the tired, ineffective "letter of the week" framework. As a result, they are likely to experience delays in the development of their students' literacy skills and kindergarten readiness, which leaves them frustrated, demoralized, and doubting their abilities as teachers. The purpose of Teach Smarter: Literacy Strategies for Early Childhood Teachers is to equip teachers to infuse every aspect of their teaching with exciting hands-on literacy teaching methods that engage students and help them build authentic connections with books, so that 100% of their students will have a strong literacy foundation and will be fully prepared for success in kindergarten-and beyond.

This book will feature:

Specific examples of teaching techniques and activities that engage students in hands-on, experiential learning

A simple four-step system for teaching literacy skills, based on the foundational principles of early literacy teaching

Ways to build teachers' confidence in their ability to get 100% of their students ready for kindergarten, long before the end of the school year
