Are you new to kindergarten or division I? Have you asked yourself: How do I know that my students are building a strong literacy foundation? This workshop session will look at the BIG 6 foundational pieces in early reading instruction: concepts of print, phonological awareness and phonics, word study, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension. These 6 pieces make up the critical elements of a literacy program leading to the development of strong readers. During the workshop, we will work together to develop a shared understanding of each of these foundational pieces, will discuss best practices that support the development of these skills, and will also examine the continuum of learning for each. Time to explore a variety of activities for each of the 6 components will be built in to the workshop format. You will leave with an enhanced understanding of the type of activities that need to be incorporated into every literacy program, with some great activities that can be used Monday morning.
