Through the lens of sociocultural theory, this action research paper looks into the home literacy activities of a group of six three-year old males and explores how the students ’ home literacy activities can be integrated into the preschool classroom to increase their participation. Because students bring a wealth of literacy knowledge and experience to school with them, having already mastered their primary discourse, it is imperative that this knowledge is used in the classroom to engage students in learning. interviewing By collecting home literacy diaries, and observing and six male participants, this study supports the idea that students’ home experiences and activities can be integrated into the classroom and curriculum to increase their participation.
