2 Getting to Know Emergent Literacy Learners Emergent literacy learners are at a very crucial developmental stage. Emergent learners require support and tools to assist with growing and developing correctly. The National Early Literacy Panel (2004) recognized alphabet knowledge, phonological awareness, writing name, oral language skills, and concepts about print in preschool children as predictors of later success in both reading and writing in elementary school students. In this paper, I will discuss background information about my emergent literacy student, the different assessments used, and one-research based practice I will use with my student later. I chose a PreK emergent literacy student from my school to assess, work with, and get to know. Her name was Annalee, and she is currently a PreK student at Springdale Elementary School in Macon, Georgia. She is five years old and an only child. She was born and raised in Macon, Georgia where she resided with both of her parents. Her mother is a Special Education Teacher, and her father is the District Attorney. Annalee speaks fluent English and is in the emergent literacy learner. When getting to know Annalee and I asked her how many brothers and sister she had. She responded, “I don’t have brothers or sisters. I have sister cousins!” As I started working with Annalee, it amazed me by how further along in her literacy development she versus what was my original predicted.

    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.
