Ohio Ready to Read - Early Literacy 101 Workshop

 

Early Literacy 101 is a free, full-day (6 contact hour) hands-on workshop to help library staff build a firm foundation in early literacy. Participants will learn how brain development impacts how young children learn, and will explore effective, research-based early literacy resources and activities.
 
Early Literacy 101 covers the Six Early Literacy Skills presented in the PLA/ALSC Every Child Ready to Read® 1st edition, and the Five Early Literacy Practices presented in the 2nd edition, along with other early literacy, kindergarten readiness, and early childhood learning concepts and tools, with an emphasis on how storytime, and other programs and activities already taking place at your library, support early learning.

The instructor will help attendees get ready to offer early literacy storytimes and to work with parents and community partners to share early literacy concepts, promote kindergarten readiness, and build community support.

  • Library workers who are new to children's services
  • Department managers or library directors with new children's services staff
