It’s A Balancing Act

Published: March 21, 2017

What are the three sources of information that students use as they leap into literacy? The answer is meaning, visual and structure!

Your students are balancing three sources of information as they learn to read! For young learners, meaning is typically carried throughout the illustrations, visual is the print on the page and includes phonetic information and punctuation, and structure is an understanding of how our language works. Be sure to incorporate these critical points into your lessons. When you provide exposure to a balance of each source during GrapeSEED Shared Reading Big Books and Poems, you’re planting the seeds for independent reading to blossom!
