WORKSHOP TITLE: Supporting Your Child’s Literacy Development – Preschool Level
SPEAKER: Laurie Strickland
DATE: Tuesday, February 16, 2021, 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm
LOCATION: Zoom Meeting
DESCRIPTION OF WORKSHOP: Parents and caregivers play an important role in supporting children’s literacy development, especially when children are having difficulty. You can support your child in four key ways – by listening, looking, helping, and encouraging – while you and your child participate in activities together. Taking part in your child’s literacy development can improve your child’s reading ability, comprehension, and language skills. It can also improve your child’s interest in reading, attitude toward reading, and focus. This in person workshop was developed from the National Center on Improving Literacy’s online module on supporting your child’s literacy development at home. We also discuss tips on how to support your child through remote literacy learning as well as their social emotional development.
