The more fun a child has learning new words, the more likely they are to carry on using them. Practitioners who have a good understanding of child development and use effective strategies to promote every child’s communication skills are the best resource any setting could hope for.

How do we ignite a passion for word play? What is there in our play spaces to invite a child to talk spontaneously with enthusiasm and excitement. The literacy rich environment emphasises the importance of speaking, reading, and writing for every child. This involves the adults fully considering the selection of materials that will facilitate language and literacy opportunities.

The intentional selection and use of materials is central to the development of the literacy rich environment. Adults should ensure that children have access to a variety of resources by providing many choices.
Delegates will
• Consider the resources and spaces they create every day and reflect on how ‘language rich’ it is.
• Discuss how to foster a willingness to write and joy of mark making.
• Reflect on the basic skills necessary for literacy development and how they demonstrate to children the function and utility of language in an intentional, purposeful, and intensive way.
• Explore a range of fabulous environments where children will be eager and able to be introduced and grasp phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension.
