Buckaroo Bunny's Reading Roundup

What are a Chartreuse Moose, a Maroon Baboon, a Blue Kangaroo, and a Yellow Swallow all doing on a language train? Bringing a trainload of ideas and language development activities for child care Providers, of course. The language experiences provided by caregivers are crucial to children's language development.

What is the workshop about? Join the Chartreuse Moose as he hosts this interactive curriculum designed for child care providers wanting to offer developmental language activities for young children.

The workshop focuses on language development and activities for:

  • infants
  • toddlers
  • preschoolers
  • school-agers

The workshop is designed for three hours, though shorter formats are possible.

Why? The overall goals of the workshop are to increase participants':

  • understanding of developmentally appropriate language concepts;
  • knowledge about the language development of children from birth through 10 years of age;
  • ability to identify appropriate language skills for young children; and
  • knowledge of a wide variety of developmentally appropriate language activities to use in their child care programs.

Who is it for? The workshop has been designed primarily with child care providers in mind, though others may benefit from the training.
