Phonemic Awareness with English Language Learners


Do you work with ELLs in Pre-K and primary grades? Join us for a webinar to learn more about the importance of phonemic awareness with English language learners in both Tier 1 and small group settings. We will highlight the different types of instructional settings we've seen in classrooms nationwide, discuss the importance of explicit and systematic Tier 1 phonemic awareness instruction, and how to meet the needs of ELs in alternative instructional settings.

This recorded webinar is intended for educators who work with children in Pre-K through 2nd-grade classrooms, in whole group, small group, or 1:1 settings.
