Language and Literacy Crosswalk
This crosswalk connects the familiar practices of Every Child Ready to Read to Language and Literacy domain of Ohio’s Early Learning and Development Standards.
These Implementation Guides are modeled after the Ohio Departments of Education’s Implementation Guides, but include activities specifically designed for storytimes. The guides break down each kindergarten readiness domain into strands and topics. Within each topic, there is an age breakdown for infants, young toddlers, older toddlers and preschoolers with strategies to support that strand and topic.
