LANGUAGE for Pre-Kindergarten

Language goals in preschool are the same abilities to recognize and name actions and people, various sounds in the environment, the abilities to relate and classify words and ideas, and to express ideas in gesture and word.

Lavatelli (148) in a critical overview of early childhood education programs has identified two principles of language teaching:

  1. Child should hear directed at him/her a wide variety of well formed utterances to which he/she must make a response
  2. Language intervention programs should build into the teacher's head a model of how sentences are put together.

The contents of this book are arranged and sequenced accordingly so that after going through the learning experiences, the child is able to listen attentively, think analytically, make good judgment, speak with confidence, and use the English language correctly.

Children achieve the feeling of fulfillment when, through the use of language, they are able to express themselves to others.
