Region 9-Language and Literature: Phonological Awareness

Jan. 15, 2022 9:00am to 11:00am

This California Preschool Instructional Network workshop expands on the research  on children's sensitivity to the sounds in spoken language and skills in manipulating these sounds. Participants will gain a deeper understanding of the importance of phonological awareness to early and later language and literacy achievement and engage in large and small group discussions and activities on how to implement developmentally appropriate practices that promote phonological awareness. 

Participants will:

  • Gain a deeper understanding of key concepts of the Phonological Awareness sub strand that support the Language and Literacy domain within the California Preschool Learning Foundations, Volume 1 and the California Preschool Curriculum Framework, Volume 1.
  • Observe, read, and discuss the developmental continuum for vocabulary that will guide instruction and learning in Preschool supporting Dual Language Learners. 
  • Utilize 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.
