Session Detail

Building Literacy Foundations in Early Childhood (PK-K)

The literacy experiences provided during the early childhood years help form the basis for learning to read, particularly when teachers emphasize the key predictors of early literacy: oral language, alphabetic code (letter knowledge, phonological awareness), and print knowledge and concepts. Through play and language, children’s literacy learning begins. Join this session to learn how to incorporate playful literacy experiences in your early childhood classroom.  Specific strategies to meet the needs of diverse learners will be discussed. 

Important Session Information:
