Title:Kindergarten reading: A proposal for a problem-solving approach
Author(s):Mason, Jana M.
Subject(s):kindergarten reading
problem-solving approach
active participation
Abstract:Kindergarten reading instruction practices are out of step with the needs of today s children. They are outmoded notions of how children learn and inadequate approaches for presenting reading, writing and listening activities. It is proposed here that instruction that can prepare children for reading should focus on a problem-solving approach, utilizing: (a) a literacy-rich and supportive environment; (b) a multifaceted program that extends beyond reading or copying classroom materials; and (c) an emphasis on active participation by the child in learning situations.
