Children want to be active learners—and early childhood educators can help children succeed and develop a love of reading and writing. This session will feature strategies for making reading aloud engaging and fun through choosing high-quality books. Participants will also learn to create authentic writing experiences for skill development, including handwriting and message composition activities.
Webinar Series Description:
Research shows that the skills and knowledge children demonstrate prior to kindergarten can predict academic success throughout a child’s school career. Developing language and literacy in the early years can help to prepare children for later learning. This three-part webinar series is designed to help early childhood educators, paraprofessionals, related services providers, and parents of young children understand language development and how it relates to literacy and later school success. The series will pay particular attention to supporting children with speech and language delays and disabilities.
All registrants will receive a one hour follow-up mentorship. The presenter will coordinate follow-up via email upon the completion of the webinar.
This webinar may be used for professional development hours through New Hampshire Child Care Licensing.
