If you’ve ever said, “It just is….It just does…..You just have to remember!” when trying to help your child read or spell a word, then this workshop is for you! Phonics can be tricky for kids (and for parents!), but not if they know the “secrets” to cracking the code! In this workshop designed specifically for parents, you will learn the secrets about WHY letters make the many different sounds that they do, and how to share them with your child in a way they can easily understand. For example, did you know that the letters /t/ and /h/ don’t get along, and that whenever they sit together in words, they always stick out their tongues and say,“thhhhhhh!” By providing logical explanations for letter sound behavior, kids can easily predict their most and next-most likely sounds, so as to read words, rather than having to memorize them. Boost your child’s ability to read, write and spell independently with brain based teaching tools that are sure to become the most relied upon pieces of your ‘at-home’ teaching-repertoire!
Katie Garner, M.Ed. (author of best-selling book, Secret Stories® Cracking the Reading Code with the Brain in Mind) is an internationally known keynote speaker, author and literacy consultant with thirty years of experience working in elementary grade classrooms across the country, and a passion for infusing neuroscience into literacy and learning! Katie's “backdoor-to-the-brain” approach to fast-tracking phonics skills for reading, via social-emotional learning systems, shifts the paradigms associated with beginning literacy skill instruction. Her fast-paced, dynamic presentations spotlight brain-changing strategies for boosting existing reading curriculum and phonics instruction with the latest reading science showing how our brains learn best. Katie's practical and proven methods for bringing neuroscience into the forefront of literacy and learning have been the subject of numerous professional journal articles, and have been shared in both lecture and panel discussions at Harvard University and MIT. https://www.KatieGarner.com
