Letter/Sound Recognition & Alphabetic Principles in Early Literacy Development

Participants will receive an overview of letter and word recognition skills young children need to develop to become successful readers. We will explore easy ways to incorporate letter/sound recognition and skill development into programming. We will take a look at early alphabetic principles, what skills are expected for Kindergarten school readiness and what they look like in the Early Childhood classroom. Participants will receive many easy to use, limited material ideas to implement during their classroom routines and in play centers.
