CHILDREN’S EARLY LITERACY PRACTICES AT HOME AND IN EARLY YEARS SETTINGS
Tablets and touch-screen technology could be vital to engage new readers from key groups of young children where literacy is a concern. This report outlines findings from Pearson and the National Literacy Trust’s second annual early years literacy survey, conducted in May to July 2014. It examines children’s access to books and to technology, as well as their early reading habits, but it also examines the impact of these practices on young children’s vocabulary.
