SHARING SYNOPSIS

Have you ever wondered how we can help young children build meaningful connections between print and their own prior knowledge and background experiences? Research findings show that engaging young children in book-reading is vital for language and literacy acquisition in the early childhood years and beyond. This workshop aims to promote language and emergent literacy in young children through a variety of book-reading approaches. The approaches will equip educators and parents with ways to scaffold children’s oral language and reading and writing skills through book-reading. The various strategies will be shared with the participants through interactive discussions and hands-on practices during the workshop.
