Early Childhood Professor, Students Share Ideas on Literacy

“Literacy in the Classroom and in the Home” was among the presentations during last weekend’s Central Susquehanna Association for the Education of Young Children annual conference on Penn College’s main campus. Billie A. Coffman, associate professor of early childhood education, and students in her Language Arts for Young Children course offered ideas for integrating emergent literacy (beginning reading and writing) into daily routines with young children, both at the child-care center and at home. Home ideas includedincorporating literacy into every room in the house: kitchen, bathroom, living room and bedroom. Photos from the presentation were provided by the Children’s Learning Center (IDs for the group photo at top right of the collage are, from left, student Jodi L. Binkley, Danielle L. Tyson and Jennifer L. Roberts, and Coffman. Jessica A. Ackley was absent.):
