Promoting Literacy Outdoors

With: Jill Bienenstock, RECE – Director of Education at Bienenstock Natural Playgrounds – March 8, 2024 – 9:45 to 11:00

In this workshop, we will step outside the standards of reading and writing and explore how and why outdoor unstructured free play supports motor, creative, social, and language skills needed to assist in the foundations of literacy for young children. We will focus on setting up your playground to support the physical prerequisites needed for literacy and provide ways to expand children’s outdoor play. The aim is to provide participants with additional tools to enhance their current strategies used to support the success of reading and writing.
