Literacy in the early years: Supporting ākonga to thrive through their literate identities

When it comes to literacy, the current buzz is around structured literacy but building capable learners with a strong literate identity is more important in the early years. In this workshop we explore what it means to be literate in the early years context and what it means to have a literate identity, as well as exploring what structured literacy is and what it means for ākonga as they go to primary school. We will then workshop the ways that early years settings can weave ākonga literate identities with literacy practices that will support the lifelong learning of ākonga.
