I agree with your answers to #s 2 and 3. However, I think repetition is the best answer to # 1. As I recall these books, the authors use a lot of repetition. You might also check this site.
Ms. Sue, thank you for your help!
0n question 1,isn't referential language
critical to the development of literacy skills?
That's why I was thiking the correct answer was referential language?
Have you listened to and/or read those stories? Repetition is throughout. Ms. Sue is correct.
I know repetitions are throughtout the stories-but please explain to me why the correct answer would not be referential language.
Because referential language promote literacy skills.
As I understand referential language, it's the way a child learns to speak -- first with one word -- then adding one, two, three more words -- to make sentences.
But many different techniques promote literacy skills. Repetition is one of these techniques. Children love the repetition and often virtually memorize these stories. They then will "read" the story to another person. As they do that, they're making the connection between oral speech and written language -- a necessary prerequisite for reading.
