One of Southwest Human Development’s literacy experts will teach parents how to explore books on different literacy levels so that they are able to make age-appropriate book selections for their children. This workshop will encourage parents to use rhyming to help children pay attention to sounds. Parents will learn how letter sounds are building blocks for children to learn to read. Facilitators will model strategies of ways to play with sounds to help children pay attention to individual sounds of language in a fun way.  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. This program is for children ages birth through 5 and their adult caregiver(s). Admission into the Museum is FREE for pre-registered children and one adult for each child. Regular Museum admission will apply for any additional adults or accompanying children over the age of five.  Space is very limited.  Please click here for tickets.
