If you have ever worked with the preschool population, you've likely heard of The Hanen Centre. If not, be sure to check them out because they have awesome resources and workshops! They just came out with an awesome new product that I want to talk to you about today--the Preschool Language and Literacy Calendar.
This year's calendar focuses on critical thinking skills such as problem-solving and predicting. Each month features real photos, a theme about a language skill, research for building language and literacy, and weekly tips for home and school!
To read a little more about critical thinking, check out these articles:
-Preparing Preschoolers for "School Talk"
-More than ABCs: Building the Critical Thinking Skills Your Child Needs for Literacy Success
Here's what I love about these calendars:
-They are practical--everyone uses a calendar.
-It discusses research and research-based tips.
-It is good for parents and SLPs.
-It's focus is critical thinking skills, which are so important for school and the rest of their lives.
