Every Child Ready to Read & Cruise into Kindergarten: Parent/Educator PQAS Workshop

Main (Oakland)

During this workshop, caregivers will learn why it’s important for children to get ready to read starting at birth and will understand the essential role adults play in developing early literacy skills. Participants will also learn how to use the five early literacy practices (talking, singing, reading, writing, playing) to nurture early literacy skills. The workshop includes discussion, demonstration, and activities.

As a result of this workshop, participants will be able to:

– Identify the two skill areas (decoding and comprehension) necessary to become a successful reader and their connection to early literacy.
– Understand and explain how to use the five practices (talking, singing, reading, writing, playing) to promote early literacy development and provide a literacy-rich environment.

Early childhood educators will receive PQAS credits for their attendance:
Knowledge Area 5: Communication
Core Knowledge Competency: Describe the ways in which the development of vocabulary and reading skills impact children’s successful communication skills.
Competency Level 1 (C1)
