Life Lessons Through Literature: Never Too Early Literacy Training Sylvia Kennedy-Godin

Special Topics:
Sponsor: Bennington Early Childhood Center
Instructor: Amelia Struthers

Literacy learning begins at birth and is a cornerstone for later academic achievement and lifelong opportunities. Early literacy includes all activities involved in speaking, listening, reading, writing and appreciating both spoken and written language. Early Childhood Professionals with families are key to creating meaningful opportunities for young children to develop early literacy skills and the love of reading and writing. This two-part workshop enables early educators to a)identify the components of quality children’s literature for ages birth to six; b)plan how to use children’s books to both launch and enhance all areas of the curriculum; and c)practice reading and using quality literature to help children develop and express their early literacy skills. Participants must attend both sessions and practice using the books between sessions. Participants will receive a set of quality children’s books. This training is open to all early childhood providers in the Bennington County region.
