Literacy Workshop

One literacy workshop is scheduled at this time.

Literacy Missions Ministry is about spreading God’s love by teaching someone to read and write, teaching someone to speak English, and tutoring children and youth. Visual Phonics is a multi-sensory tool that is helpful when used in each of these areas of Literacy Missions Ministry. Visual Phonics is a system of forty-five hand shapes and written symbols that look and feel like the sounds they represent. It helps students hear, see, and feel the sounds in our spoken language and involves:

The Alphabetic Principle
Decoding Skills
Articulation
Auditory Therapy

Literacy Ministry volunteers can use this valuable tool to teach adults, children, or youth to read and to spell. Volunteers teaching someone to speak English can use Visual Phonics for auditory discrimination and articulation. Visual Phonics is fun and easy to implement, learn, and retain quickly.

A free seven hour workshop will be offered on Saturday, October 28, 2017, at Northwest Baptist Church in Oklahoma City. Attendees must register by Monday October 23, 2017. Please call Bettsy Yarbrough at 405-942-3000 x4313.

 

The next BGCO Literacy Missions workshop, offering the basic 11 hour workshops in ESL, ARW, and TCY, will take place in August 2018.

For questions about these workshops please contact Cheryl Wilkinson at kcmr1513@gmail.com
