  5. 5. How we learn
  6. 6. Neurons: Building Blocks of the Brain
  7. 7. A Baby’s Brain • 100,000,000,000 neurons at birth • Each has about 10,000 dendrites (branches) • 1,000,000,000,000,000 possible configurations • 17% of the neurons are wired at birth
  8. 8. A child’s journey into literacy
  9. 9. What Children Need for Language Development • Enriched environment • Secure environment • Loving environment • Conversation • Exploration • Limited TV
