He argues, “for an authentic code switching that involves valuing oneself and one 's culture while appreciating and understanding the codes of other cultures. It involves fluidly navigating multiple spaces and, in the process, creating new codes that embrace a more hybridized identity” (Emdin 178). To gain a hybrid identity, students obviously must obtain knowledge of other cultures. A great place for this would be in a class of immigrants from all over different parts of the world. All of the students taking the Basic English course with Mrs. Hamma are learning how to understand and appreciate others cultures.
As a child before you learn how to read you must first sound words out for example cat, dog, and map. Another reason I believe phonemic awareness is significant to decoding words because it improves students reading and comprehension level which will lead to a fluent reader. Phonics is defined

Interact with the child, pointing to the picture and then repeating words with the child watching our mouth saying the word. A community resource that might help the child advance developmentally language wise would be the Topeka, Shawnee County Public Library. This would be a good community resource because all the books and activities will help her advance with learning new words and recognizing animals, shapes, and
Not only by exposing them to the language they will speak, read and write the English language correctly, students must learn and understand the meaning of words. Vocabulary words help any English language learner communicate effectively with any other person. According to Wilkins (1972), “Vocabulary is central to English language teaching because, without sufficient vocabulary, students cannot understand others or express their own ideas.” On the other hand, many teachers recognize the importance of teaching vocabulary and they must emphasize it daily in their lessons. Among many skills, vocabulary in context is one of the most commonly used. To aid vocabulary in context, the use of a Card-file among other strategies may enrich the student’s experience and understanding of what they speak, read, and
5 strategies that a teaching assistant might use to support literacy development: 1.Improving language which means building children’s vocabulary. Vocabulary is very important. It is needed to communicate, to understand others and to express own ideas. Building and improving vocabulary will improve reading and writing skills. In order to improve children’s vocabulary teaching assistant could make sure to provide children with a language-rich environment.
LDC-5d 3.With prompting and support, students will use books and other media that communicate information to learn about the world by looking at pictures, asking questions, and talking about the information. LDC-9j 4. Students will associate sounds with the letters at the beginning of some words, such as awareness that two words begin with the same letter and the same sound. LDC-12i
First, it delivers cognitive development with new complex vocabulary and expressive words like, “orangutan”, “saw”, “rhinoceros”, “ridiculous”, and “delighted”. In addition, it also exposes the child to mature language by introducing them to complete sentence structure and proper grammar. The second benefit that a student is presented with by reading Oliver Jeffers book is social development by highlighting certain situations like the purpose of firefighters it allows the child to pay more attention to certain community lifestyles and by supporting a child to form a connection while reading or listening to the book it allows the child to exercise empathy with the main character of the
We know talk about Englishes rather than English and multiliteracies rather than literacy Language cannot be defined so that it relates to just one particular element of human evolution. Language can be looked at as a cognitive development in which educators teach their students to speak using grammatically correct language. However, it can also be looked at as something which is physically present and can be manipulated to suit the requirements of the speaker. This can be done through elements of communication including speech, audio recordings, and written text, thus making it similar in properties to material objects (Gee & Hayes, 2011, p.6). Furthermore, there is the requirement of developing the context of written and oral language, due
First one is that activities should be appropriate children`s age level. Second one is that instruction should be purposeful and third one is that activities and materials should be integrated with other components of a balanced literacy programs. A teacher can teach identifying words, categorizing words, substituting sounds, blending sounds, and segmenting sounds by doing age appropriate activities with children. Teachers assess children by using screening test to determine the level of their knowledge about phonemic awareness and they use instruction assessment cycle are planning, monitoring, evaluation, and reflection. Phonemic awareness is important to learn how to read and it is prerequisite.
If they are structured to support student-to-student or group interaction, ELLs are required to use English language to explain concepts and contribute to the work. This gives teachers an opportunity to gauge what the student has learned, and it also helps the student to demonstrate his/her progress in English language development. As an educator I can also informally assess for correct use of language structures and academic vocabulary. I will identify, teach, and post key academic vocabulary and structures for one content lesson each day because students need help to become more aware of how language functions in various modes of communication across the curriculum. My role is to make students understand well enough how language works and also to select materials that will help expand their students ' linguistic horizons.
7. We’re all cultural creatures. I will use rhyming in my classroom by knowing my children and their likes, encourage participation, have one on one interactions, and promote phonological awareness. I will use T-I-P-S I will be T- tuned in to the children. I- introduce the book, P- promote language and S- summarize the book.
Interactions between an adult and child during the early years are vital for their development and learning, as they are still grasping day-to-day skills and understanding new life concepts. Children learn and develop their language and literacy skills through interactions with others; they begin by absorbing, listening and then imitating and practising (Buckely 2003) Learning environments that promote language and literacy development are environments which expose and encourage children to interact with various forms of print. Behaviourists such as Skinner (1953) argue that language acquisition and development are learned through observation of behaviours in their social environment; these behaviours are then practiced through imitation by the child. Children learn through imitating what they see others do or how they behaviour, play is the most important learning tool for children to construct meaning of these behaviours. Dramatic play in early childhood settings allow for children to recreate environments they may have visited and share their experiences with their peers, such as going to the doctors.
