Let’s Give Them Something to Talk About! Supporting Oral Language Development in the Early Childhood Classroom
Wednesday October 14, 2015 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT
Presented by Dr. Jean Feldman, teacher, consultant and celebrated author
Sponsored by Frog Street Press
Oral language is the foundation of literacy. However, as children spend more time in front of a screen, their oral language skills and ability to engage in conversations is diminishing. In this webinar recording you’ll learn how to give children something to talk about — with rhymes, chants, songs, stories, and active learning!
- Tips for helping children focus
- Developing oral language with routines and transitions
- Fingerplays and rhymes to nurture auditory memory, oral language, and phonological awareness
- Alphabet chants and songs for articulation and phonics
- Stories children will want to retell
- Strategies to engage parents in talking to their children about school and what they are learning
Death is silent. Learning is noisy! Watch Dr. Jean and discover how to reach children, teach children, and guide them on an exciting learning journey with oral language activities.
