In an early childhood setting, an effective Library area conveys the message that exciting things can happen when children engage with literature. As the hub of literacy learning, this often-underappreciated area can become a powerful ally as help children build important literacy skills. In the final webinar in our Encouraging a Love of Reading series, you’ll gain insights into working with what you have to design a welcoming space, make the most of your materials, and most importantly, interact with children in ways that not only support vocabulary, knowledge of print, and phonological awareness, but also instill in children a lifelong passion for reading as a source of enjoyment.

Only through deep, analytical book discussions can children truly benefit from the dynamic characters, rich vocabulary, and powerful social-emotional themes that present themselves in high-quality children’s literature. Join us for the first event in the Encourage a Love of Reading webinar series, as we explore how repeated, interactive read-alouds not only promote listening skills, comprehension, and critical thinking but also present opportunities to guide and support preschool and kindergarten children’s social-emotional development.

Increasing Energy and Engagement for All Writers
Young children are capable of incredible thinking, which can be seen in their writing when they see themselves as writers and when adults honor children’s approximations of writing. Using video clips and writing samples, participants will examine key beliefs about young writers. This session will provide participants with practical, developmentally appropriate intervention strategies that support young children as writers. In addition, participants will learn how these beliefs about young writers translate into instructional practices in early childhood classrooms, both in terms of a daily writing workshop and planning units of study across a year.
A copy of Matt Glover’s book – Engaging Young Writers will be provided with registration cost.
