Academic Article


  • The article presents information on environmental print (EP). Based on the book "Integrating Environmental Print Across the Curriculum, Prek-3," EP is a print that can be found in children's natural environment, including logos, labels and road signs. Teachers whose learning theory is constructivist are aware that children develop their own knowledge about print. Through EP, the children become active participants in their literacy learning as they bring their favorite labels and logos inside the classroom.
