    Description & More Details



    Read a sample chapter and the table of contents from this book!

    You may be missing out on an easy, yet powerful, early learning tool: story dictation—simply listening to children's stories and writing them down word for word.

    Story dictation builds a range of skills, including literacy and abstract thinking abilities, while helping fulfill early learning standards.

    This book will help you learn the basics of story dictation, including when and how do it; how you can use it to assess and document growth in a variety of areas, such as language and social development; and the most common subjects of children's stories and what they may represent.

    "An excellent how-to resource guide for all early childhood professionals who want to use an effective, developmentally appropriate activity to tap into a young child's imaginative and creative energies in order to develop her skills in language, literacy and a host of other learning domains." —SpringerLink
