Every Child Ready to Read
Every Child Ready to Read Family Workshops is a series of three 45-minute workshops that involve young children and their parents in learning about early literacy practices that help prepare children to be successful in school. The latest reading research has been adapted into a series of parent and caregiver workshops to help prepare parents for their critical role as their child's first teacher. Early literacy practices are highlighted and parents have a chance to practice them with their child during the 45-minute workshop. They also get a book or other resources each week that goes with the practices to take home to keep and use with their child. Fun interactive activities, practical tips, and resources are shared during each session. Materials for families and your library are available from the Read to Me program at no cost to your library. Workshop scripts in English and Spanish are provided.
Idaho Public Libraries are encouraged to apply to participate in 2015-2016 by the end of May. Applications can be found at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/ECRRapp .
