1. Reflections – Early Years Language and Literacy Development: Providing Optimal Opportunity for Growth event on 12 August 2020

In the first part of the session educators who attended this event (presented by speech pathologist Stephi West) will reflect upon some of the key messages that Stephi shared during the session with particular attention to:

  • further develop knowledge of early literacy and language development
  • identify the literacy and language proficiencies, needs and development of students
  • consider effective and proactive planning and teaching strategies and environments
  • monitor and respond to student progress

2. Exploring the building blocks of number – and creating mathematically rich learning environments

In the second half of the session participants will engage in a professional dialogue with Desiree Gilbert (Senior Educational Consultant at AISSA) focussed on numeracy and mathematics in the early years learning environment. Specifically, we will explore concepts of matching, comparing, sorting and ordering as the building blocks for developing deep number understanding and as essential first steps in supporting students to become successful and confident mathematicians. There will be opportunity to pose questions and share practices with colleagues as Desiree leads thought provoking conversations about what is possible when planning authentic learning environments that are mathematically rich and purposeful.
