About This Webinar:

Did you know that literacy and social emotional development occur on a parallel path? Well, it’s true! Early childhood professionals can connect literacy and social emotional development activities across their daily schedules and routines. This provides children with many opportunities to practice these developing skills. Children’s books and storytelling can be fantastic catalysts to connect literacy and social emotional development. This webinar will provide fun ideas, activities and resources as well as ideas for partnering with families to promote social emotional and literacy development. Additional resources including book recommendations and related materials to support diverse families (including military families) will be provided to participants.
