Region 9-Language and Literacy: Vocabulary

Jan. 22, 2022 10:00am to 12:00pm

The number of words that children learn is strongly related to later school success, because reading comprehension depends on it. This professional learning experience will provide participants with opportunities to support children's knowledge in understanding and using words for objects, actions, and attributes, understanding and using words for categories of things and actions and understanding and using words for simple and complex relations between objects.

Participants will:

  • Explore key concepts from the California Preschool Learning Foundations and the California Preschool Curriculum Framework Volume 1, Vocabulary substrand
  • Observe, read, and discuss the developmental continuum for vocabulary that will guide instruction and learning in preschool
  • Practice using the Preschool Learning Foundations and Preschool Curriculum Framework to intentionally plan developmentally appropriate, cultural, and inclusive strategies that promote the development of skills, knowledge, and behaviors related to language and literacy development

Audience: Teaching/Administrator/Leadership Staff
