Supporting the language and literacy development of young children through song games Wong, Wendy T.

Abstract

Part one of this research report explored what the literature has to say about the ways in which songs, song games and music may support the language and literacy development of young, non-English speaking children. Findings from that review indicated that music and movement can be a powerful tool to introduce, teach and reinforce curricular and abstract concepts. Part two of this research report identified appropriate music and movement resources and strategies that early childhood educators can use with non-English speaking kindergarten children to support language and literacy development.
