Research on the teaching of reading in the early years of school has consistently identified five key components of effective reading programs: phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension. Reading stories to children on a regular basis is regarded as one of the more potent supports for literacy learning (bus, van ijzendoorn, & pellegrini, 1995).
Group efforts, peer cooperation, and teacher-student interaction become an important part of the new reading strategy instruction approach. These supports mediate opportunities for literacy engagement and practice, and will likely influence children’s attitudes and efforts to engage in literacy activities despite difficulties they may encounter as they learning to read summarize, program features that support literacy development include:• a supportive learning environment in which children have access to a wide variety of reading and writing resources.
Knowing these conventions, she found, helped in the process of learning to the exception of a study by tunmer and colleagues (tunmer, herriman, & nesdale, 1988) demonstrating the relationship of these skills to later reading success, however, there is little evidence to suggest the predictive power of these skills on later achievement. Research has also suggested that readers could be trained to learn and use reading strategies, which raised the need to incorporate reading strategy instruction into the school curriculum.
Based on a massive body of research (burgess, 2006; lonigan, 2006), phonological awareness is a critical precursor, correlate, and predictor of children’s reading achievement.

1998); in fact, evidence suggests that such training, without a firm understanding of phonemic awareness, may be detrimental to remembering words and learning to reviews and analyses (dickinson et al.

At the same time, quality indicators would do well to recognize that phonological awareness skills are integrally connected to other important language skills which need to be strongly bolstered in these early education and care knowledge: knowledge of the alphabet letters is a strong predictor of short- and long-term reading success (bond & dykstra, 1967; chall, 1990). Code-related skills are highly predictive of children’s initial early reading success while oral language skills and background knowledge become highly predictive of comprehension abilities and later reading achievement.
Children who participate frequently in adult-child writing activities that include a deliberate focus on print have better alphabet knowledge relative to those who may spend time on other activities like shared reading (aram & levin, 2004). However, its influence on later reading is not about knowing the letter names, per se.
Studies (dickinson & smith, 1994; whitehurst & lonigan, 1998) have shown that a parent’s style or approach to reading storybooks to children has both short-term and long-term effects on language and literacy development. The integration of reading strategy instruction with cooperative learning has changed the traditional pattern of reading as an individual activity.
The library community might consider focusing on language, vocabulary and its relationship to comprehension and reading success. Given the tremendous attention that early literacy has received recently in policy circles (roskos & vukelich, 2006), and the increasing diversity of our child population, it is important and timely to take stock of these critical dimensions as well as the strengths and gaps in our ability to measure these skills the following sections, we first review the important skills that are related to early language and literacy achievement.
The research literature clearly focuses on the importance of materials and interactions, as well as the social components in learning.

Such verbal interactions contribute to children’s vocabulary growth which, in turn, is strongly correlated with phonological awareness, comprehension, and subsequent reading also engage in activities that are highly supportive of literacy development. A daily interactive book reading routine that introduces children to multiple genres, including information books, narrative, poetry, and alphabet books.
Some materials elicit greater social interaction and cooperation, like block building, whereas others encourage more solitary and or parallel play, such as puzzles (see review, roskos & neuman, 2001). Rather, print conventions act as an immediate indicator of children’s familiarity with text, and are not integrally related to the other language based skills associated with reading success.
These skills have the potential to grow throughout one’s lifetime, and can dramatically influence children’s long-term abilities both in reading and content research has significant implications for teaching and our focus on the skills necessary for children to read. Last decade has brought a growing consensus on the range of skills that serve as the foundation for reading and writing ability (dickinson & neuman, 2006; national reading panel report, 2000; neuman & dickinson, 2001; snow, burns, & griffin, 1998).
Their report, recently issued (2008), indicated that the most powerful predictors of reading achievement were alphabet knowledge, phonological awareness, rapid automatic naming, and that oral language and vocabulary were only moderate predictors of (2005), however, has most recently demonstrated the flaws in what has come to be understood as this traditional view. Specifically, the library community would be wise to emphasize the informational aspects of book reading and its important relationship to background knowledge and conceptual development.
This paper summarises the research regarding why these five elements are important, as well as how they should be taught in the ad the literature review (3. 2 research on constrained/unconstrained 2002, the national early literacy panel (nelp, 2008) was convened to conduct a synthesis of the scientific research in the development of early reading skills for children ages 2-5.
