Live Virtual: Purposeful Interactions

Join us for this LIVE virtual training about the importance of purposeful interactions in early language and literacy development.  Young children look to you to provide them with new information, support for their feelings, guidance for their behavior, and feedback on their accomplishments.  Being purposeful in the interactions and experiences you offer young children is essential to supporting early language and literacy.  In this training, you will learn how to create engaging and purposeful activities, experiences, and interactions with young children.  Discuss how to plan purposeful interactions for every day moments and add knowledge to your understanding of the power of purposeful interactions with children.  Learn how to identify areas of interests and levels of literacy and language skills with children and strategies to engage children in purposeful experiences. 

This virtual training requires you to use a webcam or front-facing camera to create a more interactive and engaging learning experience.  Zoom access information will be provided by email the day before the training.  

This course is appropriate for all early care and education professionals in center-based and family child care settings.
