Fostering Young Children’s

Interest in Literacy

By, Jennifer Brand

Through experiences in homes and communities, children learn that with the written word, comes meaning, and reading and writing are used for a variety of purposes important in everyday life.
Children’s understanding of the importance and use of reading and writing reflects how written language is used in their own community.
Children have a wide range of literary experiences and these experiences vary from community to community
The main purpose for written language varies between communities. Some purposes are:
        • Practical tool - to pay bills
        • Leisure-time activities
        • debating social and political issues
Important for primary-grade teachers to demonstrate the purposes of written language and provide opportunities for the students to experiment with reading and writing in many areas such as:

Posting signs in the classroom

Making a list of classroom rules

Writing notes to students in the class

Exchanging messages with classmates

Reading and writing stories

Making posters about favorite books

Labeling classroom items

Drawing and writing journals

Reading and writing charts and maps

Reading and writing letters to pen pals

Writing notes to parents

Writing morning messages

Three types of concepts that young children acquire from their experiences with varied materials are:
  • Book - Orientation concepts
  • Directional concepts
  • Letter and Word concepts
Concepts are acquired as children are read to, read books themselves, through demonstrations of writing, and through writing activities.

  • Young children do not differentiate between words and things.
  • Children describe words as labels for things.
  • Children understand that words carry meaning and that stories are built from words
  • More fluent readers and writers describe words as autonomous elements having meaning of their own and definite semantic and syntactic relationships.
