Language development begins with children’s ability to understand what others are communicating to them. Young children understand much more than they can say and then they gradually learn to express themselves through cooing, babbling, gestures, and crying. Further development brings words, sentences and rules of grammar. What is the role of the early educator throughout all of this and how do you create a learning environment to stimulate all learners? Alignment of planning and activities with NC Foundations of Early Learning and Development (NC FELD) may feel overwhelming, but it doesn’t need to be. Align planning and development with language acquisition in this learning event! We will also explore theories of language acquisition, the stages of language development and list strategies to create an intriguing environment for all learners.
