Raising A Reader: Building Connections Through Shared Experiences
One of Southwest Human Development’s literacy experts will give parents/caregivers strategies on how to incorporate interactive talking and learning experiences into everyday life, and discover ways to extend and enrich literacy-based activities. Parents/caregivers will also learn the value of early and frequent verbal interactions with their children. Child observation, staying in the moment, and parents’ role in language development will be discussed. This workshop is designed for children ages birth to five plus a parent/caregiver and includes story time, an art activity, singing, and dancing. Each child will receive a new book to take home. Admission into the Museum is FREE when you pre-register for this program. Space is limited. Please click here for tickets.
