Oral language and articulation have moved to the forefront of concerns for teachers since the pandemic. The deficits seen in these two areas are hugely impacting young children’s phonemic awareness and phonological development. This workshop will help teachers plan for explicit opportunities to develop and support oral language, articulation, listening and speaking skills as well as comprehension of texts. Topics of choosing quality literature that is age appropriate, planning clear moments of modeling for children , turn and talk, partnerships and grand conversations will be included in this day. When children are orally fluent and can have thoughtful conversations about books with others, the transition to writing those ideas down becomes less daunting for both students and teachers. “Talking fluency is connected to writing fluency!” (Skills supported: listening to models of reading, listening and speaking to others with clear intention, growing ideas about stories, monitoring; envisionment, drawing conclusions, oral language vocabulary, comparing and contrasting, partnerships and more!)
