Region 9-English Language Development, Reading

Dec. 11, 2021 10:00am to 12:00pm

Children who are English learners may have already learned some of these early literacy skills in their home language. This workshop will provide information on how to bridge the home language and English by making cultural connections, and ensure children remain motivated during this stage of pre-literacy. Learning to read is promoted by close and nurturing relationships with adults who foster ineractions with interesting and engaging print.

Participants will:

  • Gain a deeper understanding of key concepts of the Reading strand that support the English-Language Development (ELD) domain within the California Preschool Learning Foundations, Volume 1 and the California Preschool Curriculum Framework, Volume 1
  • Observe, read, and discuss the developmental continuum from the English-Language Development (ELD) domain
  • Become aware of the four Keys for Supporting Dual Language Learners

Level: Introductory
Audience: Teaching/Administration/Leadership Staff, Family child Care Providers, Family, Friend and Neighbor Care Providers
Age Range: Preschool and Transitional Kindergarten

This training has been developed to support learning through active engagement.
