MetadataShow full item record
With the legislature of the No Child Left Behind Act developed by the United States Department of Education all children are expected to perform at the proficient or advanced levels of learning. The bar has been raised and teachers are expected to do all that they can do to ensure children's success in education. An area of importance is literacy achievement. It can be a difficult task for kindergarten teachers to progress children to that level of proficient or advanced in literacy when children are entering kindergarten with little or no background in literacy development. This project was created in response to the need for kindergarten children to reach proficient or advanced levels in literacy, specifically in the areas of phonics, fluency and word recognition skills. An idea developed to support teachers in their efforts to help kindergarten children excel to their highest potential was to create a poetry center that focuses on the skills of phonics, fluency, and word recognition skills. This project is a guide for teachers on how to create a poetry center in their kindergarten classroom.
