4 September 2019: Workshop on supporting young children's writing (Grades R & One) | Application form
Registration for this workshop closes on 28 August 2019.
About the workshop
We know that young children find it easier to write when they have the language they need in order to express themselves with confidence. Many children have limited language learning opportunities in their early years, and do not begin school with the vocabulary they need to express their ideas and explain their thoughts. Many are also learning to write in a second language.

In addition to needing strong language skills, children need to be able to hear sounds in words and know how to represent these sounds with letters. These are important foundations for their journey as writers.

In this workshop, we will share ideas for supporting the development of young children’s writing.
The focus will be on:
· Understanding how children’s writing develops
· Telling and reading stories to build language and scaffold writing
· Building awareness of sounds and letter-sound knowledge
· The value of invented spelling and ‘have-a-go’ writing
· Using a writing rubric to assess and support young children’s writing
