                      The Animated Literacy Workshop
               By Jim Stone, teacher and author of the program
                                      HELP YOUR STUDENTS…
     avoid the “4th grade slump” by exposing them to a vocabulary-rich environment in
      preschool, kindergarten, Grade 1 and 2.
     improve their reading and spelling by strengthening their phonological awareness
      skills and letter pattern recognition.
     who have weak speech and language skills, English as a second language and/or
      reading and spelling problems.

    THE ANIMATED LITERACY PROGRAM is an integrated, multi-sensory
           approach that is easy and fun to teach to an entire class,
                  in small groups or to individual students.
   It is supported by current BRAIN, LANGUAGE and READING research.

This two day workshop will present classroom tested strategies and materials along with the methods that have
made Animated-Literacy popular and successful! Participants will learn how to integrate phonological awareness,
vocabulary/comprehension and phonics/letter pattern recognition using literature, singing, storytelling,
movement, sound play, drawing, labeling and manipulatives. Gestures for teaching and reinforcing the 42 sounds of
English will be modeled. Sound and word substitution activities that develop decoding skills, word recognition,
fluency, vocabulary and writing skills in context with songs and stories will be demonstrated over the 2 days. The
updated, expanded content of this workshop includes new ideas and materials that reinforce reading and writing
skills through both teacher-guided and independent work. Added support for the systematic introduction of high
frequency words in context with decodable labels from the drawing and „toy box‟ lessons are included in this
workshop. It is an approach that can be used on its own or will easily complement other literacy programs such as
Balanced Literacy and Joly Phonics.
Jim Stone, the author of the program, is a very dynamic and entertaining speaker. These workshops will give you
practical, “hands-on” activities to take back to your students and classrooms. One teacher‟s comment after Jim‟s
workshop – “This is the best workshop I have ever been to!” One child‟s excited comment while learning the
Animated-Literacy program – “I can read and I‟m only in kindergarten!”

     Learn how the Animated Literacy program can make learning fun, fast-paced and easy in a
                  playful, interactive environment! IT’S LITERACY IN MOTION!
