Books are the cornerstone of literacy but what the children hear is the cornerstone of language development. In this session we will be describing and defining milestones for children birth to 3 and how the milestones affect the process of acquiring language and literacy skills. We’ll look at which books are appropriate at different stages of development. We will brainstorm the best ways to apply what we’ve discussed to real world situations. Finally we will examine the impact that the teacher plays in the children’s acquisition of language.

As a result of this webinar, participants will be able to:
  • integrate various opportunities into the learning environment that support curiosity, thinking and problem-solving for children
  • describe ways of interacting with children using encouraging and nurturing words and actions
