Join teachers Denise Heppner and Tirzah Reikoff for October 20 from 7:00-8:30 pm their presentation entitled Nurturing Emergent Literacy in Play-Based Outdoor Education: An Exploration of the Learning Journey of a Kindergarten/Grade 1 Class in Forest School.
This research delves into the aspects of literacy learning that are fostered by participation within an outdoor educational context (Forest School), adding to the emerging research literature that outdoor play-based activities provide authentic learning for all students. The research provides important information into facilitating the learning context of Forest School and examples of the teacher’s role in supporting students’ narrative competence and emergent literacy skills.
The research team will provide a brief presentation followed by a panel discussion.
