What has The Very Hungry Caterpillar got to do with dialogic reading? Find out in this session which introduces participants to dialogic reading - a way to read to children and enhance the interactions around the text they are reading. You will be introduced to the PEER strategy, where educators provide feedback and scaffold children towards growth in vocabulary and expressive language. You will also learn how to use CROWD prompts—an acronym for five different types of prompts that educators can utilise to enrich the questioning process. With these activities, participants will gain confidence in choosing books, asking questions and responding effectively when reading to 2- to 5-year-old children.
In light of the recent announcements for tightened COVID-19 measures, all in-person workshops will be taking place online and subject to changes in date and time. Registrations are on a first-come-first-served basis.
