Resource material

In this webinar, Danielle Thompson gives the basics of phonological awareness. This is a great review for teachers who have background knowledge on phonological awareness and a fantastic introduction for teachers with less experience - especially for K-3 teachers who teach reading.

*This webinar is one of a series of 10 that was recorded for NW Colorado BOCES to support teachers in their literacy instruction. You can find the others in the series by searching for the key words "literacy webinar series" in the SEED PAK.
