Science Builds on Early Literacy

Participants will be introduced to the importance of young children's development of language and literacy skills and how their natural interests in science can be the foundation for developing these skills. Science in early childhood settings is part of the typical classroom routine. Children naturally explore, investigate, and experience the world that surrounds them. They develop their own theories about how the world functions. This training will enable participants to identify a literacy rich learning environment. Demonstrate how to implement intentional learning experiences. Participants will also affectively apply a series of steps that will lead to children's natural tendency to explore. The goal is to foster and support a variety of skills such as; receptive and expressive language, attention regulation, problem solving, and higher level thinking skills. Researchers have found that children are most likely to learn language and literacy skills when they have opportunities to use these skills in authentic situations (e.g., Goodman 1984; Teale & Sulzby 1984).
