Never Too Early Part 2

Oct 23

This two-part training by the Vermont Humanities Council offers an introduction to reading and sharing book and conversations with children.  In this lively, interactive workshop, learn the importance and joy of sharing picture books and stories with infants, toddlers and preschoolers.  Through hands-on exploration of children’s books, learn about early literacy and related developmental issues.  Learn ways to create a literacy-rich environment, and share practical ideas with others.  Discover ways to make books come alive through animated reading, rhymes, and extension activities that encourage language development.  Take home ideas you can put to use immediately in your program, along with a free set of gift books.  “Early literacy and authentic nature play” will be one topic included in discussion.
