Promoting Early Literacy Skills in Young Children

Ages Birth to 4 years
January 19, 2011
6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

Parents and caregivers are a child’s first and most important teacher. What can we do to help our children be ready to read? Join us as we clap, tap, rhyme, read and sing. Learn how these simple, fun and enjoyable activities give children a healthy and happy start on the road to reading.

Grades K-3
January 26, 2011
6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

Our children are taking their first steps in becoming readers. How can we support their efforts? Join us as we look at helpful and practical ways to read with children whether they are enjoying reading or are reluctant to read. Learn about choosing books for all kinds of readers and tips for making reading meaningful and enjoyable.

Both workshops will be held in the Fitchburg Community Center, 5510 Lacy Road, in the Fitchburg Room. These workshops are free, but registration is required. Call 843-5757 with questions or to register. Credit for Registry certified caregivers is available.

Parents as Teachers

Join us for two workshops focusing on promoting early literacy skills
using books by and about African Americans. Each family will receive a free book to take home. Children will enjoy a storytime with a craft activity while parents learn how to help their children enjoy success as readers. Questions? Call Megan at 843.5757.
