Promoting literacy through play environment.

  • Literacy development of children begins before formal schooling and is influenced by the :quantity and quality of literacy-related experiences in the home environment.

Choosing props l.jpg

Choosing props…

  • In order to determine the appropriateness of different literacy props we need to ask:

  • Can the props be used quite naturally and safely by children?.

  • Is the prop a real item that children might naturally find in their environment?.

  • Does the prop serve a particular function that children may be familiar with in their everyday life?.


Challenges and recommendations l.jpg

Challenges and Recommendations

  • Traditional views of play as children’s business.

  • Parents and teachers in general don’t view play as a real opportunity for academic learning (to read & write) to occur.

  • To adjust this perception persuasion,explanation and providing more evidences are required in the favor of connecting play to literacy .

On Not Pushing Too Hard

  • There is a danger that filling play settings with literacy props may shove aside other playthings that children might enjoy, prefer and benefit from.

  • Teachers should avoid becoming too directive or too intrusive with play based assessment and be careful not to push play out while pulling literacy into play.,
