Literacy development starts in the early stages of life, before young children come to school, and continues into adulthood. The literacy process consists of the relationship between oral language, writing and print-rich environment. Oral language is the use of spoken words to show how a person thinks or feels. Before the use of oral language, children first use cries and gestures to express themselves. Children then begin to use oral language. Oral language is the foundation for reading development. For instance, if it is developed early, it will enhance a child’s vocabulary because they will have a wide variety of word choice to use when speaking. Another example would be that oral language allows a child to go learning the specific names for objects or their surroundings, rather than using words such as “thing”, or “it.” If children are familiar with oral language before entering school, once they come to school, they will be able to grasp new concepts quickly.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
