Class General Information
Course
Idaho Child Care Reads
Description
This early literacy workshop will focus on the importance of reading to children, laying a foundation for getting children ready to read and how to use free resources found in the local library. The curriculum is built around the following six early literacy skills recommended by the National Research Council: narrative skills, letter knowledge, print awareness, phonological awareness, print motivation and vocabulary. Each skill will be explored through a variety of activities and practical examples. Childcare providers will have a set of skills ready to take back to their site to begin or expand upon early literacy development. The skills are appropriate for use with children ages 2 years through kindergarten. Free books and materials will be provided to each attending site, in order to build on-site libraries.
