Raising School Ready Readers

Literacy development starts at home with parents and caregivers serving as a child's first teacher. Raising School Ready Readers offers parents fun ways to engage their 3- to 5-year-old child in literacy play.  Sessions focus on developing six core literacy areas that will give your child a head start on school readiness:

  • Concepts of Print
  • Phonological Awareness
  • Letter-Sound Knowledge
  • Oral Language
  • Comprehension
  • Writing

Workshops give ready-to-use ideas on how to turn everyday experiences--like fixing meals, giving baths, or riding in the car--into learning activities.  Register online at http://bit.ly/ReadyReadersEly for this FREE workshop with FREE family meals and free childcare!  Workshop will be held on Monday evenings at the Ely Public Library from 5:30-7:30 pm March 23 – April 27.
