This workshop is designed to teach educators a unique, engaging, and evidence based program that helps early learners in both regular and special education classes acquire phonemic awareness, listening, early literacy, language, and articulation skills through the use of body movements. The program, which also addresses the phonemic awareness skills designated for Pre-K - 1st grade in Common Core State Standards, has been shown to be beneficial to children who are English Language Learners, students who qualify for Title 1 schools, and children who have special needs. Attendees will learn body movements for 40 phonemes, along with techniques for teaching developmental listening and language skills.
