Tuesday, November 27, 2018 | 9:00 AM - 3:30 PM
Session Location:
Central Alberta Regional Consortium 8 Page Avenue, Red Deer, AB
About the Session:

Play is the primary means by which young children make sense of their world. On the other hand, we know that certain foundational literacy concepts must be taught, especially to children who come to school with limited print experience. In this session, Lori will share practical ideas for developmentally appropriate literacy instruction that balances free play, guided play and explicit instruction. Some of the topics we’ll address will include:

  • Oral language and vocabulary development
  • Creating a culture of inquiry
  • Shared and guided reading
  • Reading-writing connections
  • Ten-minute teaching
