*Essential Instructional Practices/Strengthening Reading Instruction - Pre K 17/18-303 10/26 & 12/14

The purpose of this training is for early childhood educators to deepen their understanding of the Ten Essential Literacy Instructional Practices for Pre-Kindergarten. On the first day of the two-day series, participants will receive an overview of the development of the ten essential instructional practices and will further build their knowledge around the what, why and how of phonological awareness and alphabetic principle and the predictive power they have for later reading acquisition. 

On the second day of the two-day series, classroom teachers and school leadership teams will continue to grow in their understanding of the Ten Essential Literacy Instructional Practices for Pre-Kindergarten. The preschool years are vital for vocabulary development. Therefore, participants will further build their knowledge around the interactive read alouds with a focus on comprehension and vocabulary as well as the importance of engaging children in extended conversation, and creating an environment that offers a wide-variety of literature and literacy opportunities throughout the day.
