K Beyond the Core: Invigorating Reading and Infusing Science in the Literacy Block
Are your children tired of reading about different colors of buttons as they enter into the exciting world of reading? Do you struggle to fit science and engineering into your day? In this workshop, we’ll discuss new ways to infuse the Literacy Block with science learning, and share a hot-off-the-press set of new Tools materials to deepen children’s engagement in science learning, including early readers tied to classroom themes, coordinated new Interactive Read Alouds and center science extension activities, with science and engineering content that aligns with Next Generation Science Standards. Prepare to be invigorated and refreshed with new and exciting ideas, and return to your classroom with new materials to improve children’s motivation, comprehension, decoding and science understandings.
