Designed specifically for K-1 educators, this 2-day workshop focuses on instructional approaches aimed at exploring the sound, pattern, and meaning relationships among words in order to develop children’s phonological awareness, decoding, spelling, and vocabulary. Students are guided towards making discoveries about how words work and generalizing their understandings in order to read, spell, and write more efficiently.
*If you interested in being a R.I.S.E school, this workshop supports Goal # 1 of this initiative “Sharpen the focus, strengthen the instruction”.
