About This Course
This course provides the opportunity to learn to use the Read It Again! curriculum supplement to promote language and literacy foundations with children age birth to five. Read It Again! Infant/Toddler and Read It Again! PreK are free curriculum supplements that provide a systematic, intentional, and flexible approach to building children’s language and literacy skills in four learning domains: print knowledge, vocabulary, phonological awareness, and narrative. The twice-weekly brief lessons based on 15 high-quality storybooks are easy to use during your current shared reading time. The lessons are developed to provide repeated opportunities for children to learn and apply new concepts. The learning objectives are sequenced so that the supplemental lessons progress from easier concepts to more difficult concepts. The lessons in both versions of Read It Again! include a Learners’ Ladder to offer scaffolding strategies for differentiating instruction to meet the needs of all children. Read It Again! also provides built in opportunities to monitor children’s growth in the four learning domains. Learners will be provided access to download both versions of the free Read It Again! curriculum supplement.

- Identify three ways Read It Again! helps children ages 0-5 build early language and literacy skills.
