and as we consider the role of decoding I wonder what it means that my kids Love accessibility features. Ben used screen readers on websites and John watches every show with closed captions on.

I love when I worry that a class isn't talkking enough and then they turn around their laptops and their a ton of voices shouting away in type as they debate in ...that soon translates into oral discussion as well.

Yet now "turning off" or less screen time more a marker of privilege so I do not know of quantitative predictor of "concept of print" would work, but wonder if the primacy of words printed in books warrants the assessment and teaching of concepts of print

Greg McVerry

We know Concepts of Print a stable predictor of later literacy success I haven't seen the data or the tool to see if Concepts of Pixels does the same. My guess it would as both are great measures of privilege and inequity.

Debating screentime using @wiobyrne screentime.me in @scsu. Students chose a perspective and must write a letter to parents explaining "their" preschool recommendations.

@rpondiscio I don't hate explicit phonics instruction. I stress it and but I believe every kid "will love to read by third grade" better goal than every kid can read. Enough learning research shows how passion drives folks to persevere.
