Let's Find Out!
Building Content Knowledge with Young Children
In her new book, Let's Find Out!, kindergarten teacher Susan Kempton talks about the importance of helping children build the content knowledge that is critical to educational success. She shows how she capitalizes on children's natural curiosity and uses various tools—literature (particularly nonfiction), visuals, living and nonliving artifacts, drawing, song, movement, dramatization—to develop language, concepts, and basic literacy skills. As their foundation becomes richer, children's talk, writing, and options for reading expand and flourish.
