The Phonemic Awareness professional development webinar, provided by a knowledgeable Literacy Specialist, provides educators with an overview of the Heggerty Phonemic Awareness curriculum.
Participants will learn about the lesson components and activities included in all three levels of the curriculum: the Pre-K version, the Kindergarten version, and the Primary version, which can be used with 1st and 2nd grade classrooms and is recommended for use with older learners who struggle to decode. The webinar focus can be on the English and/or the Spanish curricula.
Zoom is the online platform that is used to provide the webinar for teachers, so an internet connection, video screen and speakers are required.
