Literacy at the PreK-K Level
September 9th at noon PDT and September 10th at noon PDT

This webinar is a two part series. You will be registered for both sessions when you register.

September 9th
Part 1: Developing strong language and literacy skills in PreK and Kindergarten are often cited as the foundational building block for future school success. Children should experience story comprehension, phonological awareness, and phonics in developmentally appropriate and engaging environments. In Part 1 of this two part webinar series we will look at the separate reading and writing skills involved in early years language and literacy skills development and how targeted professional development can support the overall knowledge base and comfort level of teachers.

September 10th
Part 2: PreK and Kindergarten environments must meet the unique needs of young learners. These developmental characteristics result in schedules that are not divided by subject, but instead are organized into larger chunks of time that are theme or concept based with smaller groups and activities happening at the same time. In Part 2 of this webinar series, we will look at different template options and considerations that schools can use to authentically capture language and literacy mapping in Prek and Kindergarten classrooms.

Curriculum Writing: Approaches to Unit Planning
September 29th, November 11th, December 12th 12:30 pm at PDT

Strong unit plans should clearly articulate learning goals by identifying what students will know, understand, and do as a result of instruction. Once this has been clearly established, teachers can connect the activities and learning experiences that will engage students and bring learning to life. Join us as we explore curriculum development by taking a high-level look at how to support teachers as they write units of instruction.

In this session we will examine elements of high-quality unit plans and break down ways to approach unit planning in a way that is practical, approachable, and tangible. The registration link below is the same for all dates. Select in the drop down menu which session you’d like to attend.
