We know that young children learn by doing, by exploring the world around them and playing with hands-on activities. With this in mind, educators will explore why and how we can use oral language development to support reading and writing. Participants will have the opportunity to explore resources and strategies like discussion protocols, the use of oral rehearsal, language supports and writing strategies. They will apply their learning when they develop a plan with colleagues to implement one strategy.
This workshop is designed for educators who teach early literacy skills (K-2 grade levels).
I leverage early learners’ oral language skills to support reading and writing development.
