Hackett, Abigail; Somerville, Margaret – Journal of Early Childhood Literacy, 2017
This paper examines the potential of posthumanism to enable a reconceptualisation of young children's literacies from the starting point of movement and sound in the more-than-human world. We propose movement as a communicative practice that always occurs as a more complex entanglement of relations within more-than-human worlds. Through our…

Wohlwend, Karen E.; Peppler, Kylie A.; Keune, Anna; Thompson, Naomi – Journal of Early Childhood Literacy, 2017
Two approaches to materiality (i.e. mediated discourse and agential realism) are compared to explore their usefulness in tracking literacies in action and artefacts produced during a play and design activity in a preschool makerspace. Mediated discourse analysis has relied on linguistic framing and social semiotics to make sense of multimodality.…

Kuby, Candace R; Rucker, Tara Gutshall; Darolia, Laura H. – Journal of Early Childhood Literacy, 2017
This manuscript focuses on agency from a posthumanist stance. For so long, educators' definitions of agency have focused solely on people. As we read more on posthuman ideas of agency, we were also reading Deleuze and Guattari's work on philosophy and concepts. These two bodies of scholarship intra-acted with each other to create newness of ideas…

Bridges-Rhoads, Sarah; Van Cleave, Jessica – Journal of Early Childhood Literacy, 2017
This paper was written in the midst of enquiry--provoked by the question of what happens when we write posthumanism, qualitative enquiry and early literacy together. Rather than offer a stable methodology that is the product of our experimentation, the paper functions as a map, a situated cartography that has multiple access points and is…

Boldt, Gail M.; Leander, Kevin – Journal of Early Childhood Literacy, 2017
In this article, we think through six-year-old Mike's play with Lego and with his father, using Deleuze and Guattari's concept of the break. For Deleuze and Guattari, the break is thought about in relation to impersonal flows of desire that are always everywhere at work and to the refrain, which we describe as materials and energies organized into…

Harwood, Debra; Collier, Diane R. – Journal of Early Childhood Literacy, 2017
Children's intra-actions with the natural world offer an important lens to revisit notions of literacies. They allow for a decentring of humans--here children--as actors. Also, forest schools and nature-based learning programmes are increasingly erupting across North America, although more commonplace in Europe for a longer period. In this…

Hermansson, Carina; Saar, Tomas – Journal of Early Childhood Literacy, 2017
This article explores how the processes of writing and writers emerge and transform in two examples of Swedish early childhood educational writing practices. Students' writing is a multifaceted activity involving a myriad of interconnected elements; however, to make sense of what is going on, more knowledge is needed about the connectivity, the…

Thiel, Jaye Johnson; Jones, Stephanie – Journal of Early Childhood Literacy, 2017
Drawing on our documentation of transforming an informal learning centre (the Playhouse) in a multilingual, working-class neighbourhood, this paper presents significant and deliberate material-discursive changes at the Playhouse that produced unpredictable shifts in belongings among young children. More specifically, this paper entwines our…

Wargo, Jon M. – Journal of Early Childhood Literacy, 2017
(Re)Entering data from a networked collaborative project exploring how sound operates as a mechanism for attuning towards cultural difference and community literacies, this article examines one primary grade classroom's participation to investigate the rhythmic rituals of 'emergent listening' in early childhood literacy. Thinking with sound…

Burnett, Cathy – Journal of Early Childhood Literacy, 2017
At a time of increasing calls from policy makers for the use of "hard evidence" in driving decision-making at national and local levels in educational contexts, this article contributes to debates about evidence-based practice in early literacy research. It proposes that a reliance on studies designed to generate 'hard' evidence limits…

Nutbrown, Cathy; Clough, Peter; Levy, Rachael; Little, Sabine; Bishop, Julia; Lamb, Terry; Yamada-Rice, Dylan – Journal of Early Childhood Literacy, 2017
This paper explores the changing roles of families in children's developing literacy in the UK in the last century. It discusses how, during this time, understandings of reading and writing have evolved into the more nuanced notion of "literacy." Further, in acknowledging changes in written communication practices, and shifting attitudes…

Kervin, Lisa; Turbill, Jan; Harden-Thew, Kathryn – Journal of Early Childhood Literacy, 2017
The face of early childhood education continues to change. In Australia, the national early childhood guidelines, "Early Years Learning Framework" (2009) and the "National Quality Framework" have articulated and defined the work of early years' educators in a range of areas, including literacy. Both frameworks state that their…

Bernstein, Katie A. – Journal of Early Childhood Literacy, 2017
This paper explores the idea that young children's emergent literacy practices can be tools for mediating peer interaction, and that, therefore, literacy, even in its earliest stages, can support oral language development, particularly for emergent bilinguals. The paper draws on data collected during a year-long ethnographic study of 11 Nepali-…

Kim, So Jung – Journal of Early Childhood Literacy, 2016
In spite of the emphasis on the importance of social contexts in children's literacy development, there is still a startling scarcity of studies examining the role of peer relationships in preschool bilinguals' literary practices. This qualitative case study investigates how peer relationships and interactions among preschool, Korean-English…

This paper explores dance as literacy. Specifically, it examines qualitative case study research findings and student examples from a dance artist-in-residence that explored curricular content using dance as its primary mode of enquiry and expression. Throughout the residency, students constructed meaning through their dance experiences in dynamic…
