Block One : An Ounce of Prevention

An Ounce of Prevention; Catching Kids Early: Some of the most distinguishing features of any literacy initiative is 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, school 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 prevention is clear. Join us for an interactive session on strategies and emphases on propelling your students through the school year.%uFFFD-Participants will explore literacy foundations
