Emily Moorehead (Ed'03) is a Kindergarten teacher with the Limestone District School Board. Within a play-based kindergarten program, she ensures a sound start for early readers and spellers by employing structured literacy as a way to connect and build strong foundational skills. Through playful and joyful daily literacy activities, Emily’s little learners grow into readers! Routines practiced and learned at school allowed for a smooth transition to remote learning - and ensured that the learning continued even when schools were closed.
