Junior teacher candidates had the opportunity to play with over 25 children between the ages of 12 months and 6 years. In order to gain experience observing the children's language arts behavior, they engaged in a variety of activities including finger painting, puzzles, reading books and drawing.
This event allowed the students to learn how to write a case study and put into practice what they have been learning in the classroom regarding emergent literacy.
