10) Answer to 1.1: The common thread between emergent speaking, reading, and writing is the use of language as a means of communication and social interaction. It is important for children to acquire these skills in an integrated manner to support their overall development. a) Emergent speaking is the initial stage of language development where children begin to understand and use verbal language. They discover the power of speech to express thoughts, convey ideas, and interact with others. b) Emergent reading is the process wherein children begin to understand that printed text carries a message. Linguistic comprehension becomes critical here, and understanding the spoken language is instrumental for them to make sense of what they read. c) Emergent writing is the stage when children begin to understand that they can communicate their thoughts and ideas through written symbols. They learn that writing is another way to express what they speak. Hence, all three are interlinked and integral to literacy as they enable a child to communicate and understand effectively. Answer to 1.2: Parents can promote print awareness at home by providing children with plenty of printed materials like books, newspapers, and magazines. They can help their children recognize letters and associate them with sounds. Reading stories out loud, pointing out words in books, making a habit of reading every day, and involving children in label-reading on grocery items are also beneficial. Parents can also create a print-rich environment by labeling household items. Answer to 1.3: The use of developmentally appropriate material in a Grade R classroom is of high importance. It ensures that teaching and learning process caters to the child's developmental readiness, interests, and needs, rather than pushing them towards inappropriate learning targets. Children learn best when they are actively engaged in the learning process, and materials that are suitable for their age and developmental stage will ensure this. Appropriate materials can provide them with interesting and meaningful learning experiences, which in turn boost their motivation and self-esteem. For example, using books with large, colourful images and basic words can improve children’s early language and reading skills. Similarly, manipulative toys like building blocks can help in their cognitive and motor skill development. Simple art supplies can enhance their creativity and fine motor skills.
