Presented by Tandem Partners in Learning

In this workshop, educators will learn the differences between phonological awareness, phonemic awareness, and phonics and why the development of these skills leads to later reading achievements. Through fun games and activities, educators will learn new tools to support the development of young children’s phonological awareness in developmentally appropriate ways.
Discutiremos la diferencia entra la conciencia fonológica y la fonética y por qué el desarrollo de estas habilidades son vitales para la lectura. A través de juegos y actividades divertidas, aprenderán nuevas herramientas para apoyar el desarrollo de la conciencia fonológica de los niños pequeños.

May 16 @ 9:00 am - 2:30 pm

Presented by Child Care at Its Best

Family child care homes and some center-based care settings integrate children of different ages. This interaction results in greater opportunities for children to form friendships and relationships than they could have in a group of same-age children. Mixed-age settings provide children with opportunities to observe, emulate and initiate skills and behaviors that can be monitored in a safe and developmentally appropriate manner.

8:30 a.m. check-in.
