Thank you for
participating in this on-line workshop series, "Supporting Emergent
Literacy: Developing Story Language, Phonemic Awareness, and Phonics."
Through this workshop, teachers have been extending their learning
about emergent literacy, as well as sharing their knowledge of helpful
teaching techniques and literature titles. Please take time to review
the suggestions in the Session 2 Lesson Plans.
If you haven't
checked out the "Ask a Question" section, please visit it to read
other teachers' questions and comments. You'll find that many teachers
are interested in more information not only about phonemic awareness
and phonics, but also about guided reading, a balanced literacy program,
and suggestions for students with special needs. Many participants have
taken the time to respond to some of these questions by sharing
your teaching ideas and experiences. This activity adds a wonderful
dimension to this workshop and contributes to everyone's learning.
I have been
pleased to be a part of these workshops with you, and to belong
to the Scholastic Community of Learners. Best wishes for a great
