Event: Organic Literacy: Planting the Seeds of Literacy in our Youngest Learners
When: Sat, Oct 4 9:00 am – 12:00 pm
Description: Organic Literacy: Planting the Seeds of Literacy in our Youngest Learners

As adults we encounter opportunities to engage in reading, writing, listening and speaking all day long every day. One of our roles as supportive early educators is to assist young children in developing the skills to navigate our literate world as well as delighting in the opportunities that provides. This session with Susan Bennett-Armistead will focus on finding and taking advantage of the many natural teachable moments throughout the day with children as well as purposefully planning experiences to maximize their literacy learning.

Registration opening soon!
Location: Wells Conference Center, University of Maine Orono campus
