Illuminating Strategies for Early Readers

Saturday, November 11
9:15 AM - 10:15 AM
Location: 210 A

An early reader is often easy to recognize. A four-year-old who can accurately read billboards, street signs, and advertisements is clearly advanced. Yet others may have advanced literacy skills that are not so obvious, such as children who like to create, write, and perform songs and stories. This session is designed as a practical introduction to indicators of advanced literacy skills in young children, the role of the preschool teacher, the importance of a literacy-rich learning environment, the importance of reading aloud, and classroom strategies for early readers.
