Parents Help Kindergarten Students Build Language and Literacy Skills at Westberry School.

Almost two thirds of Westberry Kindergarten students joined their parents at the 3rd annual Language and Literacy Workshops on January 19th and 20th.  Parents and children worked through 5 stations that showcased communication skills (the Face-to-Face strategy and using open-ended questions), phonological awareness skills (isolating first and last sounds, segmenting 3 - 5 phoneme words, & recognizing rhyme), reading together using the Picture Walk strategy, and developing automaticity of letter names and letter sounds. 


 

At each station, parents were provided with strategies and materials which they then used to practice with their children.  It was a great opportunity to support parents as we all work together to develop literacy skills in our Kindergarten students.
