This workshop is presented in collaboration with other Occasional Teacher locals throughout Ontario.
In this two hour Saturday session Martha Kovack, MEd, will provide OTs with an introduction to the science of reading and what structured literacy looks like in the classroom. Participants will be introduced to the importance of connecting the sounds, spellings, and meanings of words, and how Orthographic Mapping supports efficient storage of words in memory. The emphasis will be on practical activities for the classroom.
Participants will leave with ideas for games/activities that will ensure effective practice with decoding, learning new vocabulary, and mapping words onto the brain!
Registration deadline is Monday November 13 at 4:00 p.m.
A Zoom link and other workshop information will be sent to registrants on Wednesday November 15.
