Block One : An Ounce of Intervention - Catching Kids Early with Literacy Strategies that Work

jul 25, 2019: 10:30 a.m. - middag

The most distinguishing features of any literacy initiative are the emphasis on literacy and language in all of the disciplines and access to literature the entire year. The need to focus attention on foundational literacy and access to books year-round while including families is now more important than ever. For students entering school unprepared or for students who are not reading on grade level, the classroom can be a place where struggles undermine confidence and critical skills remain underdeveloped. As a result, the reading achievement gap widens as students move beyond Kindergarten. With a renewed focus on reading proficiency, the case for intervention is clear. Join us for an interactive session on literacy strategies that support your students through the school year.

Participants will explore:

literacy foundations
the need for access to books and literacy all year
how to engage families
