Literacy In The Early Years - Webinar

- Can you identify emerging literacy skills?

- Do you know of strategies and tools educators can provide to support these emerging skills? 

- Are you aware of the difference between reading to learn and learning to read?

Literacy is an important aspect of communication, which is vital for successful learning across the curriculum. The Early Years Learning Framework describes literacy as the capacity, confidence and disposition to use language in all its forms (p41). This session will help you to understand how to integrate literacy activities into your program, and how to support emerging literacy skills in children.

Completing Literacy in the Early Years contributes 2.5 hours of PD addressing Standard 2 from the Australian professional Standards for Teachers - Professional Knowledge Standard 2: Know the content and how to teach it; 2.5: Literacy and Numeracy Strategies.
