From Scribbles to Writing | Online Webinar

Monday, 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm Free

Art is the “first language” of the beginning reader and writer. Children usually draw or paint before they write. They use what might seem like just scribbles, lines and blobs to represent things. But isn’t that what writing is all about?

About

Both art and writing are a process of symbol making and can be a means of communication. Children’s pictures are words to them and represent an essential step on the road to literacy. In this edWebinar, participants will:

    • Look at the ages and stages of writing from infants to kindergarten and explore the many ways to support children’s beginning writing and art skills;
    • Explore the essential social and emotional aspects of art and writing expression while building an emotional vocabulary;
    • Develop new ideas for process-based art activities for self-expression and storytelling;
    • Use poetry and the work of modern artists to inspire children’s art and writing;
    • Build positive and supportive strategies for talking to children about their art; and
    • Define the current brain research that supports the importance of art as a tool for self-expression, language, and writing.

This edWebinar will be of interest to pre-k and kindergarten teachers.
