More Meaning: Developmentally Appropriate Practice & Small Group Learning
Limited Capacity seats available

With all we have to cover in Pre-K, sometimes we don’t focus as much as we would like on guided play, social emotional skills, and higher level learning. This session will explore practical ways to integrate these components into a rigorous developmentally appropriate day.  We will also explore how to use differentiated, fun small group lessons to give every child what she needs. The pragmatics of setting up daily small groups and lesson ideas will be shared. Come explore, reflect, and prepare to make this year the most meaningful ever!

ELA-Prekindergarten-Growing Children as Writers and Readers of the World
Limited Capacity seats available

We know that a huge part of a Pre-K day is spent playing so we’ll highlight the intersection of literacy and play, This course is designed to support teachers of young readers, writers, and talkers.

You will learn how to plan for read aloud as a cornerstone of your classroom instruction. Presenters will help you consider different types of read aloud across the day in order to augment children’s literacy experiences. A wide range of books will be introduced and you will learn ways read aloud can be used to nurture, engage, and activate children’s minds and emotions.

The course will also address the significance of drawing and writing for a variety of purposes, from sharing stories about the people and places from students’ lives to teaching everything they know about the things they love the most. You can imagine the opportunities for rich language development as children talk, draw, and write.

You’ll hear ideas for monitoring and recording children’s work and ways to use these observations to make adaptations and modifications designed to meet the needs of every child in the room. Listening to children’s talk, observing their interactions with books, materials, and one another can give you a window into their lives and help you plan for their learning with intention and flexibility.
