*Principal approval required for this course—campus budgets must pay for fall sub day.Kindergarten is different and special for many reasons but especially because it’s many children's first experience with intentional reading instruction. We will take a fresh look at the reading workshop just for the kinder student. Structure, environment, mini lessons, conferences, management, stamina, will be the pieces of study to help teachers keep our youngest readers engaged. You'll walk away prepared and confident to implement reading workshop within the first week of kindergarten. (In addition, 1 full follow-up day in the fall and 1 coaching visit.)
