Language and Literacy in Early Childhood
June 14, 2022 - June 14, 2022
Language and literacy are a part of our everyday life. Our world is filled with conversation, listening, reading, seeing and creating text and processing this information in different ways. Supporting language development is crucial for fostering children’s holistic learning across all areas as children are encouraged to communicate, exchange thoughts, feelings and ideas.
This workshop will encourage participants to deepen their understandings, investigate experiences which go beyond the spoken word and reflect on their own professional practices to guide children’s critical thinking and positive dispositions towards language and literacy. Practical, meaningful strategies will be explored that foster the creation of rich language and literacy environments through intentional teaching opportunities.
