Webinar: The Five Pillars of Reading: A Foundation for Literacy Success in a Virtual World

All the best things in life start with a strong foundation and the ability to read is a critical building block of every student’s literacy journey.

Every child is different, each one of them unique with their own star qualities, strengths, and challenges. And for many students, being in a class and now learning remotely from home can feel intimidating and even overwhelming, which can lead to a loss in reading achievement.

Webinar: 7 Strengths for These Challenging Times: Using SEL and Stories to Sustain Powerful Learning Communities for All

The loss of routine and the school environment is deeply disorienting, but together, we can unite school and home communities to create vibrant, meaningful experiences to support our students, families, and educators in our continued mission of learning. In this edWebinar, author and literacy expert Pam Allyn will share ways we can continue to support and nurture students and families in these days of unexpected transition and trauma.

Webinar: Building Foundations in Reading, Sounds, and Text

How do we ensure that our youngest students are on the path to success and excited to continue learning? By building a rock-solid foundation in reading, sounds, and text during preschool and kindergarten! This short but critical window of time sets the stage for a student’s future—which is why, as early educators, we aim to make every moment count. With a combination of intentional play and research-based practices, early learning classrooms have tremendous potential to spark a student’s love of learning while also securing the reading skills necessary to prevent issues down the road.
