Oral Language - Lynne McCarney
This is a hands-on, practical session about the development of oral language and literacy and how and when we need to identify students at risk. This session also looks at what we can do in the classroom to support students experiencing language and literacy difficulties. Participants attending the workshop will be given a mini language and literacy toolkit which participants can take away and implement immediately. This toolkit will include a simple framework for how to have positive conversations about children’s development with parents and families and help identify the immediate adjustments that can be made to the classroom and what needs to be supported outside of school.  This workshop is suited to Kindergarten to Year 6 teachers and education support staff. 

Literacy Bites are a series of workshops focused on Literacy and hosted by experts in the field. Workshops are stand-alone, you can attend all or one of the workshop series.
