Great article. It raised a few questions for me but overall I think it says volumes for EL. Interestingly it made me feel like superwoman! I have 42x 4 year olds a week, basically by giving them a solid "education" I am helping them make choices like stay away from drugs as teens. COOL
Interesting how they determined a good EL environment. The number of books in a house in NO WAY shows the number of books the child has read to them. But I guess a few assumptions need to be made somewhere. I doubt my kids had many toys that taught them their colours but they all learnt them before 2 reguardless.
Thanks for sharing. I love reading about the brain scans that actually back up all the stuff we already do!
