Never Too Early: Foundations of Early Literacy August 6, 2019
Literacy learning begins at birth and is a cornerstone for later academic achievement and lifelong opportunities. 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 curriculum; and c) practice reading and using quality literature to help children develop and express their early literacy skills. Participants attend two, 2-hour sessions a week or more apart, and practice 2 hours with books, in between sessions. At the workshop participants receive quality children’s books at no cost.
