2 What is this CELL distance learning event? This distance learning event focuses on everyday literacy activities, which are one component of the early literacy learning model The purpose of this distance learning event is to share information about: –The definition of everyday literacy activities –How to identify everyday literacy activities –How everyday literacy activities provide opportunities for learning –How to increase the breadth and depth of learning opportunities 2

11 Illustrate: Examples of Everyday Literacy Activities Interest-based: –A child who loves birds will enjoy drawing, writing, talking, and reading about birds Opportunities for language learning: –Conversation with peers and adults during everyday activities, such as talking about the birds seen during a walk outside Opportunities to practice literacy skills: –Such as with reading and writing materials: reading a book about birds, finding bird-related items in a catalog 11

12 Introduce: Everyday Literacy Activity Continuum Everyday literacy activities can be informal or formal, or anywhere in between, depending on the context in which the activity occurs Informal Literacy ActivitiesFormal Literacy Activities 12

13 Illustrate: Informal Literacy Activities Unstructured activities Primarily directed by child, with adult being a facilitator (i.e., less adult-directed) Tend to occur within daily routines than in planned learning situations –For example, car rides, grocery stores, diapering, dressing Occur in the context of literacy-rich environments 13

14 Illustrate: Formal Literacy Activities Structured activities Tend to be more adult directed Tend to occur in more planned learning situations Can occur when an adult organizes or leads a child in a learning activity with a specific goal of enhancing literacy development Occur in the context of literacy-rich environments 14

15 Introduce: Learning Opportunities Everyday literacy activities provide opportunities for early literacy learning at home, in classrooms, and in a child’s community Opportunities for early literacy learning need to be provided frequently Opportunities for early literacy learning should be increased both across (breadth) and within (depth) literacy activities 15

16 Illustrate: Tools for Increasing Breadth and Depth of Everyday Literacy Activities and Learning Opportunities Tools to assist parents and practitioners to remember literacy learning opportunities and activities they want to do with their child/ren –Daily ScheduleDaily Schedule –Reminder ToolReminder Tool These tools are designed to help parents and teachers increase opportunities for literacy learning across (breadth) and within (depth) literacy activities They are shown on the next slide and can be accessed on our tools page located above 16
