A Language Rich Preschool Classroom?

Creating Language Rich Preschool Classrooms, Laura Justice (2004)

A short excerpt

Do children at your preschool have strong language and literacy skills?

Do children with language disabilities participate in general preschool classrooms?

Do educators at your school collaborate in language-rich curriculums?

Do you have sufficient funding for a quality preschool program? These are broad, ambitious questions,

and we hope to set you on your way to answering them and ensuring the success of all the children in your

preschool program.

High quality input
