A series of recordings and webinars focusing on strategies and approaches schools have used while transitioning their Foundation – Year 2 classrooms online.

Best practice is achievable no matter the setting. As each class has its own particular needs, this series has been designed so you can self-direct your learning based on your own experiences and requirements.

Recordings will focus on 6 key areas, including:

  • Working virtually with students in the early years
  • Unpacking a student’s point of need
  • Assessing our EAL students on the continuum
  • Phonemic awareness and phonics
  • Modelled and independent reading in an online environment
  • Working as a Community of Practice around F-2 reading

This professional learning has been designed and delivered by highly experienced teachers with practical expertise in classrooms and at the network level.

Audience

Designed for teacher leaders and teachers of Foundation to Year 2 wanting to deliver purposeful lessons in reading.

Identify what new skills and approaches you can take back to the face-to-face classroom. The recordings and webinars have been designed to stand alone but can be used as a suite to build your knowledge.

For each of the 6 key areas you can access:

  • a digestible recording that presents ideas to trial in your classroom, and additional resources to explore
  • an optional 1-hour webinar to further unpack the ideas examined in the recording, as well as the opportunity to collaborate and learn from your peers in real time.
