The Little Read Wagon has completed it's first teacher workshop of the new year! This year Little Read Wagon is focusing on phonological awareness, or the ability to hear and play with the smaller sounds in words. The January 24 workshop was held at the beautiful Igo Branch Library. In addition to the early childhood professionals, special guests were Adam Spana (SAPL Digital Services), Rose Obregon (Brighton School), Molly McCormick (Easter Seals) and Ramona Lucius (SAPL Office of Outreach).
Participants enjoyed presentations and created a variety of items to use in the classroom. Jingle bracelets, sand blocks, rhythm sticks, song books, and felt puppies were created, embellished and taken away. Each participant also received a certificate for 5 clock hours and a bag of children's books.
Registration for the next workshop opens on Monday, February 9, 2009. Remember to call early and leave a detailed message including your name, center/school name and a phone number. Your call will be returned to confirm your registration.
