Keynotes and Workshops
The Power of Joyful Reading: Bestselling and award winning author, Eric Litwin, explores how to transform your classroom (and school) into a "reading playground" - a space in which children read along to, sing to, dance to, and celebrate words and texts. He also shows how when young children are immersed in joyful and engaging shared reading experiences throughout the day, they learn to love books, enjoy reading, and see themselves as readers. They also gain reading skills and knowledge, which prepares them for reading instruction. Eric presents the empowering ideas in his professional development book, The Power of Joyful Reading, Help Your Young Readers Soar to Success. And he models these ideas by telling his original Pete the Cat stories, The Nuts, Groovy Joe, and The Poop Song. Teachers will have a great time and learn important skills that help them keep reading joyful in both in person and virtual classrooms.
