Description

Literacy is a journey. Children make meaning from letters, numbers, and symbols and begin to understand patterns from birth. This module looks at the key elements of literacy and the practical ways it can be woven into everyday moments, rich environments and fostered with children from the earliest years.

The module will examine:

  • philosophy on the development of children’s literacy skills as part of a learning journey beginning from birth, essential to supporting each child’s capacity to make meaning of and actively participate in their world and woven into and supported through children’s daily experiences and environments, and
  • literacy and pre-literacy concepts and behaviours in young children and the role of choice and enjoyment in developing literacy skills at every age.

Duration: 1 hour

Completing Walking with children on their journey to literacy: Practitioner perspectives will contribute 1 hour of PD addressing 2.5.2 from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers.
