This kit is primarily aimed at public library staff as a how-to manual to train early childhood educators. Early childhood educators include: licensed home child care providers, child care center staff, Head Start teachers, preschool teachers, and other child care professionals. This toolkit aims to offer a better understanding of what it means to partner, train, and facilitate learning with early childhood educators whose students are growing in independence and ability as they approach school entry. It includes a basic workshop with options for you to expand the workshop and/or to design additional workshops specific to the needs of your community. Topics include:
  • early literacy;
  • constrained and unconstrained skills;
  • decoding and comprehension;
  • critical dimensions of language and literacy;
  • early literacy skills;
  • early literacy practice; and
  • early literacy during routines and/or activities.
 As with previous ECRR products, the slides contained in this kit are customizable, so you can edit the wording in the slides and the notes page, you can add and delete slides, and you can insert your own photos. Kit includes PowerPoint presentations, instructions, planning worksheets, handouts, booklists, evaluation forms, resources lists, and more!
