Discussion Post: 200-300 words for both, APA format, References and in text
Part A:
To prepare children for literacy in English while supporting children in their first language, it is important to make sure that children are familiar with and understand a broad range of vocabulary and have plenty of opportunities to use it.
Think of a literacy activity for young children that will support vocabulary enhancement. You may use a lesson or activity from ECE 360 Literacy and the Young Learner if you prefer.
Respond to the following:
In a sentence or two, describe the activity.
What is the goal or objective of the activity?
Imagine you are working with a child who is an English/dual language learner with this activity. What would you say to the child to support his or her learning? Include specific questions, directions, or explanations that you might use.
Support your statements with evidence from the required studies and your research.

Part B:
Though you may not remember a lecture you had in class yesterday, it is likely that you do remember the words to a favorite song or rhyme that you learned many years ago. The repetitive nature of chants and songs, along with the emotional connection they create, provide an excellent tool to help young learners develop language skills and begin to assign meaning to words.
There are many familiar songs and chants available on the internet and through various other sources. However, early childhood teacher sometimes need to create new songs or chants to support the classroom content.
Choose a children’s literature book that includes academic vocabulary.
Select three vocabulary words from that book.
Choose a familiar tune or rhythm such as the tune to Mary Had A Little Lamb.
Put new words to the tune to teach the children new academic vocabulary you have chosen from the book. For example, in a unit about bodies of water, you might sing: Oceans, lakes and rivers too, rivers too, rivers too, oceans lakes are rivers too, carry water for you. As you sing, you might show a picture of the ocean and have a motion for the word ocean, then show a lake and have a different motion for lake, etc. Children begin to relate the word to the picture and the motion and the new vocabulary become familiar.
Post your song or chant along with an explanation of how it will support English/dual language learners as they acquire content vocabulary.
Support your statements with evidence from the required studies and your research.
