1. Launching Literacy Footprints: Kindergarten and First Grade Kits (Target Audience: Beginner Steps, Emergent, and Early Readers)
Beginning readers need to build a solid repertoire of foundational skills and develop a strong processing system. This session focuses on teaching beginning readers using Literacy Footprints materials for Beginner Steps, Emergent, and Early readers. Each framework follows a three- pronged approach integrating reading, word study, and writing skills and strategies, all aligned with the literacy continuum. Following explicit demonstration of each integral part, participants will engage in active participation and coaching, leaving confident and ready to teach small- group guided reading to Beginner Steps through Early readers.
