Becoming a Joyful Reader

Becoming a JOYFUL READER:  Supporting Pre-Emergent and Emergent Readers through Conferring

Led by: Tamara Land

Audience:  Kindergarten and 1st Grade Teachers of Pre-Emergent and Emergent Readers who own and have had some experience using Jennifer Serravallo’s Reading Strategies book and conferring

Through the work of early childhood researchers and well-regarded experts in early childhood literacy (Sulzby, Teale, Collins, Glover), we recognize that there is an abundance of meaningful work children can do before conventional reading instruction and even in tandem with early conventional reading development.  .  Through this engaging professional learning geared at kindergarten and 1st grade teachers, participants will prepare and present lessons for pre-emergent and emergent readers that meet students where they are and help them engage with and enjoy books, make meaning, acquire vocabulary, use text features to understand, connect the pages, respond to texts by writing an talking, practice their fluency, and perhaps, above all, develop identities as confident, engaged, joyful readers!
