Part 1 – Begin at the Beginning: Teaching the Alphabet and Print Concepts
The beginning skills in Foundational Literacy Skills are essential, but sometimes forgotten. Are you teaching the alphabet the same old way? A, B, C, D… What about print concepts? These earliest exposures of children to letters, sounds, and books are crucial because research indicates that they are predictors of future reading achievement. How can busy teachers find ways to engage, excite and motivate students in appropriately differentiated ways, all while Creating a Culture of Reading? Join Cindy Jackson for a discussion that includes real strategies for teachers to take into their classrooms now.
Part 2 – Decode the Difference: Phonological and Phonemic Awareness and Phonics
Phonological and Phonemic Awareness and Phonics…the definitions and ways these ideas overlap is confusing. Join Cindy Jackson for a discussion about how teachers can develop these skills in their classrooms while simultaneously creating a strong Culture of Reading, championed by empowered students who embrace reading practice enthusiastically.
Part 3 – And Just Like That: A Culture of Reading
Foundational reading skills—especially the alphabet, print concepts, phonological and phonemic awareness, and phonics—are the locomotive that pulls the train. Join Cindy Jackson for a discussion about the different “train cars” required for creating a strong Culture of Reading, from meaningful practice activities and assessments to student- and self-directed reading.
