Carden Basics: Teaching Carden in Preschool
 
Carden Basics: Teaching Carden in Preschool is a three-hour, interactive Webinar for anyone who teaches three- or four-year-olds. Carden is fun, artistic, and also academic. Learn how the Carden Preschool program provides a solid foundation for success in Kindergarten with proven approaches to learning, social development, cognitive development, phonological awareness, and reading-readiness.   
 
This course examines the use of  children’s classics such as Goodnight Moon and Ask Mr. Bear to help your students experience the sounds and rhythm of English. Find ways to introduce the letters that don’t change their sounds in an entertaining way that develops the mental image and avoids confusion of similarly shaped letters. Learn games to improve grammar and use manipulatives to help your students understand whole numbers and their relationships. This webinar satisfies Carden License Agreement requirements for preschool teachers. Three hours of professional development credit will be issued upon successful completion of this course. Group discounts are available. Call us at 843-535-0090 for more information.
