Moving Beyond Letter of the Week


Moving Beyond Letter of the Week

3.0 hours

How do you promote letter recognition and phonological awareness skills for preschool children in meaningful ways? Why is a letter of the week approach not the best way to teach these skills? If I don’t do letter of the week or worksheets, how do I promote letter recognition? In this workshop we’ll explore fun strategies for teaching children to recognize letters, sounds, and words in ways that are developmentally appropriate and prepare children for success in kindergarten.
