Teacher & Literacy Conferences

Eric shares how to transform your classrooms into "reading playgrounds" - a space in which children read along to, sing to, dance to, and celebrate words and texts. He also shows how when young children are immersed in joyful and engaging shared reading experiences they learn to love books, see themselves as readers, and gain reading skills and knowledge, which prepares them for successful reading instruction.
