Read It Again

Read It Again-PreK!

A practitioner-friendly, scientifically based curricular supplement designed to develop and strengthen young children’s early foundations in language and literacy. Lessons are organized around adult-child readings of high-quality storybooks meant to supplement – not replace – an educator’s instruction. The curriculum was developed through a two-year collaborative effort in which Crane Center researchers worked closely with early childhood educators, state-level policymakers, and speech-language pathologists. It is widely used in early childhood programs in the United States and internationally.

It includes two lessons per week, approximately 20-30 minutes which can be implemented using whole-class, small-group, or one-on-one instruction. Findings show that children in classrooms using Read It Again-PreK! outperformed children in comparison classrooms in grammar, vocabulary, print knowledge and rhyming skills. Read It Again-PreK! is available for download, free of charge, using the links below.
