Early Literacy Skills

Professional Learning Community

Early Literacy PLC

Join us and other educators in a professional learning community (PLC) to learn and share ideas that will enhance your early literacy instructional practices. At each PLC we will focus on one of these topics: Phonological Awareness, Word Recognition, and Reading Connected Text. These PLCs will give you an opportunity to learn and share what literacy instructional practices are effective and necessary as we build the skills of our readers.
