Creating Your Literacy Curriculum

Literacy is something that must be intentionally planned for young children, but that doesn’t mean that it should be too teacher-directed. This workshop is designed to give you a background in the types of literacy experiences that children should have access to in an early care program. This introductory level workshop will cover the big ideas of literacy, including vocabulary, alphabet knowledge, phonological and phonemic awareness, and concepts of print.
