Session Dates

Thursday December 13, 2018 9:00 AM - 3:30 PM

Early literacy skills underpin later reading success. The research strongly supports phonemic awareness as an essential foundational skill related to reading success.  This training will focus on the research evidence related to phonemic awareness to advanced levels for primary students in grades Kindergarten through Second Grade.  Participants will be instructed in how to successfully implement a direct, explicit, and systematic phonemic awareness instruction into daily classroom practice. Specifically, instructional practices shared will  support students consistent engagement with manipulating sounds at the word, syllable, onset-rime, and phoneme level.  Language awareness skills will focus on classic nursery rhymes. Assessments related to phonemic awareness will also be offered.
