A literacy conference for anyone working with children in preschool to grade 3 looking for new, adaptive ideas to make literacy fun again!

This is not your typical PD! This conference is available to ANYONE; you don’t need any specific letters behind your name! It’s time to collaborate and work together to make literacy FUN!

This literacy conference will guide you through four mini-sessions:

  • Emerge — Continue to teach these pre-literacy skills through phonemic and phonological awareness, as well as phonics based strategies.
  • Expand — Learn the basics of teaching reading skills including the importance of reading fluency and comprehension.
  • Engage– Time to put the learning into action! In this session, participants will receive a FREE book and the opportunity to create an interactive activity for the student level of their choice!
