Language and communication skills start developing before a child enters into this world and consist of more than merely words spoken. Language and communication can be described as all the different ways a child understands and communicates with the world. This two hour session will provide educators with the developmental framework necessary to nurture communication and language. Educators will be asked to explore children’s storybooks in advance of the session and will receive one hour of additional credit. After exploring and selecting a storybook, the educators will be asked to reinterpret or express the book using gestures, symbolic representation, rhythms or more with their class and will share this experience with others. This rich experience will provide ideas, strategies and knowledge on how to nurture a child’s love for language and communication. By the end of the session, the participants will know how the domain of language and communication is related to other areas of development and what they can do as educators to create daily experiences that foster language and communication skills by using books and print in meaningful ways.
This workshop is free thanks to the generous sponsorship by the Jefferson County Community Early Childhood Council through a grant from the Governor’s Office of Early Childhood.
