CANCELLED - *'I Am Reading' presented by Author Matt Glover, National Presenter - Another Exciting PK-1 Literacy Workshop

What do we see when young children interact with books before they can read the words? Matt Glover sees real reading, characterized by purposeful meaning-making and opportunities for reading growth and language development. “One of our biggest hopes is to help you see and value all of the powerful work young children do as readers”. With I Am Reading you will see that fostering what little one’s do before they can read the words is important early instruction. Matt will show how to nurture, nudge, and instruct young readers to make meaning in any text, whether or not they are reading words. This workshop will be held at the Herman B. Wells Community Center at Lebanon High School.


This workshop will cover:

  • Observation guides for children reading any kind of book

  • Specific descriptions of language and independence development

  • Sample reading conferences and whole-class mini-lessons

  • Suggestions for creating reading opportunities in preschool and reading workshops in K-1

  • Action plans to get you going

Join Matt and look anew at your young readers so you can provide the kind of support that gets them off to a great start!  You will receive a copy of Matt's book, I Am Reading!
