Course Description

1 ECE hour

Literacy is a developing communication system including oral skills, speaking, listening, imagination, reading and writing.

In this workshop we will explore the importance of the Outdoor Classroom and creative ways to bring literacy development to the play based environment. We will relate the activities directly to the How Does Learning Happen? Document and discuss how to help parents understand how these literacy activities support the four foundations; Belonging, Engagement, Expression and Well-being.
