NEW! Phonological Awareness: Foundations for Reading Success

Presenters:  Nicole Berkowitz, MS CSD, and Diane Happas, MS CSD
Date: February 10, 2022
Time: 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Fee: $120

Speaking, reading, and writing rest on all levels of language from sounds and syllables (phonology) to sentences (syntax), to paragraphs and connected text (discourse). Children’s learning in classrooms critically depends on their awareness and competence at all stages of language processing. Phonological and phonemic awareness are vital to the acquisition of early literacy skills in the early elementary school years.

This workshop will review the developmental stages of phonological awareness and is designed to help teachers understand the phonological foundation to literacy so that all students can learn to read and write effectively. Interactive demonstrations will include ways to embed intervention during read-aloud activities with focused attention on rhyme patterns, syllable counting, and sounds- in-words identification. Educators will gain resources for engaging classroom activities that facilitate phonological development for students. Grades PreK-3.
