Washington State Literacy Coordinators have created a four-part workshop to support teachers implementing the K – 4 Foundational Reading Skills in the Common Core State Standards.
For Pre-K, K, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade teachers. Site- or district-based teams are encouraged to attend.
The workshop series is being offered for FREE, however, participants must commit to attending all four workshops in the series and give students a short pre- and post- assessment. There will be one hour scheduled for lunch each session, but lunch will not be provided.
