My library is currently embracing a year of learning opportunities (YOLO), with different staff members presenting on different topics. I presented last week (and am presenting again this week) on how all staff can encourage early literacy practices throughout the library. My training is a mandatory training, with all 100 staff members required to attend. That means that I have a great opportunity to educate all staff about early literacy practices.
There’s not a lot of info in the actual Powerpoint, but I promise I talked a lot!
My presentation also included a touch-and-feel component where staff members got to use/touch/see early literacy materials and they had the chance to “sort” them after the Powerpoint into the five Every Child Ready to Read practices of read, write, play, talk, and sing.
