Joyful Reading, Writing, and Creative Expression with Young Children
A collection of resources developed by REL West.
These REL West resources share practical strategies for teachers to promote joyful learning experiences—through interactive reading, creative writing, and the arts—for children in preschool through the early elementary grades. The guidance offered emphasizes educating the whole child, culturally and linguistically sustaining practices, and social-emotional learning.
The resources are based on the What Works Clearinghouse practice guide, Improving Reading Comprehension in Kindergarten through 3rd Grade, the National Clearinghouse for English Language Acquisition teaching practice brief, Integrating Language Into Early Childhood Education, and other research-based guidance.
