Organic vocabulary is a term that describes a childs inner source of thoughts. Based on the early work of Sylvia Ashton-Warner in New Zealand with Maori children, organic vocabulary can help promote early literacy among children who have little connection and prior experiences with print. This book connects the early research and methodology to todays classrooms. These connections are applied to Title 1 schools (indicating low socioeconomic status), second language learners, and children with multiple levels of ability and adverse risk factors.
