Brain Science and Early Literacy Instruction
Join the Square Panda team as they explore the research on how children's brains change as they transition from being pre-readers to becoming fluent readers.
In this on-demand webinar, discover how multisensory learning paired with explicit, systematic phonics instruction helps students:
- Identify the connection between letters and sounds
- Make stronger connections when a letter and its sound is presented in a multisensory fashion
- Build the foundation for higher achievement in reading, spelling, word recognition, and comprehension
