This three-part literacy series is for preschool teachers, paraprofessionals, supervisors, child care workers, kindergarten teachers, and others looking to build emergent literacy skills at the preschool level. The series was created based on current literacy research in conjunction with Ohio’s State Literacy Plan to provide practices to increase literacy for all students, birth through age five.

  • Part 3:     March 5, 2021 |  9:00 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.
    • Building Print Awareness through Interactive Read-Alouds
      Explore the significance of print awareness and how to use read-alouds as a tool for print referencing and building meta-linguistic awareness in young children. Modeling of questioning during interactive read-alouds will be used to demonstrate how to direct young children’s attention specifically to print. Participants will leave with a thorough understanding of how to use read-alouds to teach ALL components of emergent literacy using a variety of texts. Connections will also be made to developing early literacy skills along the language and literacy continuum.
