Optimizing the Power of Interactive Read-Aloud & Exploring the Wonderful World of Wordless Picture Books in Pre-K

Fri., May 7, 2021  •  9:00 A.M. - 2:30 P.M.

Participate in person, virtually, or purchase the recording* of the workshop to review at your convenience.

 

In many early childhood and primary classrooms, read-alouds often serve as the foundation of literacy instruction and learning.  While a wealth of research supports the importance of reading aloud to learners, research also demonstrates that the most effective read alouds are those in which learners are actively involved in thinking and talking about multiple aspects of the text before, during, and after reading, rather than passively listening to a story. 

If you’re looking for ways in which you can maximize the potential of read alouds in your classroom, this workshop offering focused on Interactive Read Alouds may be the perfect match for you!  

Throughout this workshop, we will explore what an Interactive Read Aloud is, and how we can use Interactive Read Alouds at the Pre-K level to support our young learners in developing their understanding of, appreciation of and strategies for thinking and talking about texts.   During our day together, we will explore the “nuts and bolts” of Interactive Read Alouds, including how to select texts for Interactive Read Alouds at the Pre-K level, the structure of an Interactive Read Aloud, and the planning process.  You will be introduced to a wealth of brand-new (or old but good) high-quality picture books that you can use within your Pre-K classroom to support engagement and literacy learning with your learners!  A special emphasis will also center on wordless picture books and the powerful literacy learning that they can be used to support. 

We hope you are able to join us for this day of learning, as we focus on a way to support our learners and 
welcome them into the wonderful world of literacy!
