Children become stronger readers by being more aware of and inspired by amazing, interesting stories. Typically, adults share their love for stories through reading picture books to their young readers. Did you know that reading skills enhance writing skills, and writing skills enhance reading skills? It’s true. So, why not provide opportunities for young learners to experiment with both? We will explore reading and writing tools that are advantageous to young children’s literacy and language development as well as fun, interesting, and exciting for our budding authors!

This webinar is presented by Dr. Laura Meyers. Dr. Meyers is an assistant professor at Georgia State University in the College of Education. She teaches a variety of courses to undergraduate and graduate students in the Department of Early Childhood and Elementary Education.
