Educating Culturally & Linguistically Diverse Student in Early Childhood

Keynote:Karen Nemeth, Author

Presenters: Jamie Moran, Marlboro Central Schools and Kim Wojehowski, Ramapo Central Schools; ELLementary Exchange and Zoila Morell, Ph.D., Mercy College

Developmentally Appropriate Strategies for Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Students in Early Childhood: Some of the most effective strategies for high quality early childhood education of children who come from diverse language backgrounds might surprise you! Recent research and policy guidance offer meaningful connections between play, language, and social interactions. Learn about new resources and strategies, and discuss how they can be used in your work.

Literacy Through Play: Play is disappearing in elementary classrooms. While struggling to meet the demands of the Common Core, many kitchen sets, puppets, and sand tables collect dust. We know our learners need these experiences, but how do we fit it all in? With careful planning, modeling, and demonstration, co-teachers can provide young learners with opportunities that facilitate language acquisition and literacy skills through non-threatening, developmentally appropriate play. This presentation will demonstrate how teachers can observe students at their work--building, role-playing, creating, problem-solving, reading and writing. We will show how they can join children in their play--demonstrating, talking, and recording their language. Following play, teachers and students share out to write about their play experiences and discoveries. This approach allows us to teach and reinforce early literacy skills in context.
