This training session starts with an overview of language & literacy skills in young children and what research says about developing early literacy skills and best practices for teaching young children vocabulary, oral language skills, concepts of print, print knowledge, and more. Practical strategies with hands-on activities that support learning language & literacy skills will be presented throughout the session beginning with infant and toddler and then moving on to preschool children. The continuum of language development and literacy learning will look at what skills are closely related to later literacy achievement and how teachers can teach those skills.

Participants will be able to list ways that play supports literacy learning. They will be able to plan intentional teaching moments that build children's auditory discrimination skills through play and learn to model play dialogue and scenarios by participating in children’s play.
Participants will be able to describe and create literacy rich environments that support infants, toddlers and preschoolers in their literacy learning and expand language and literacy skills through intentional planning.
Participants will be able to evaluate if their environment fosters language development and literacy learning and what their environment needs to more effective. They will compare and contrast research and practice to developmental steps for emergent reading and emergent writing and will evaluate emergent writing and its connection to communication & reading skills.
Participants will be to list ways that learning occurs through play and ways to extend play.
