You're Teaching Kindergarten: It's Child's Play

You're Teaching Kindergarten: It's Child's Play
Presented by ROBYN WILD
Perfect for all Kindergarten and Early Childhood teachers- a full day on play, reading and writing in Kindergarten. Participants will hear how the Early Years Learning Framework, in conjunction with the NSW Syllabus for the Australian Curriculum, can work together to support young children’s literacy learning and their transition to school.
Session 1.Literacy learning occurs during play as children discover, create, improvise and imagine in an environment thatencourages them to ask questions, solve problems and engage in critical thinking (Commonwealth of Australia, 2009). When literature, words and letters are embedded within these play experiences, their journey towards becoming literate is supported. (Booker & Batt, 2016, Raban & Ure, 2000, Reynolds, 1997.)
Session 2. Most Kindergarten children arrive on their first day at school thinking that they’ll learn how to read…so, let’s send them home on that first day as enthusiastic readers.
Session 3: Kindergarten children’s enthusiasm for life is precious. When they begin writing they can feel an overwhelming sense of freedom, control and success if we give them the tools…and when we’re successful, their enthusiasm for writing blossoms. This course will shine a light on those ‘tools’ (writing processes and strategies, conventions and forms,) and show how children’s writing success (when taught within a Balanced Literacy framework) is inextricably linked to their reading.
